Gypsy and Traveller Call for Sites

Gypsy and Traveller Call for Sites

North Somerset Council are embarking on a search for potential new Gypsy and Traveller sites. New sites are required to ensure that the identified needs of Gypsies and Travellers in North Somerset are met through the allocation of suitable and sustainable sites. 

As part of the site search North Somerset Council are undertaking a "Call for Sites" exercise where landowners are invited to put forward land which they consider to be suitable for assessment as a Gypsy and Traveller Site. 

If you wish to put forward a site for consideration this can be done either:
