Gypsy, Travellers & Travelling Showpeople

The government now requires local authorities to plan more positively for new Gypsy and Traveller and Travelling Showpeople's sites where it is shown that they are needed. As a result, all of the local authorities in Dorset are now working together to produce a Development Plan Document (DPD), which will allocate permanent and transit sites for Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople to meet identified needs for the next 15 years. 

Mannings Heath Gypsy Site

The current timetable envisages that it will take until the end of 2017 for the DPD to be adopted. Local communities, landowners, businesses and organisations have had opportunities to have their say throughout the process. Further information is available on the Dorset County Council website.
