Earlier in the year the City Council committed to reviewing its Traveller Strategy. The review seeks to balance the needs of the Travelling communities visiting Brighton & Hove with the needs of the city’s settled communities.
This is the first stage in the development of the city’s new Traveller Strategy that will address the important issues affecting Traveller communities and local residents of Brighton & Hove – both now and in the future.
The council's proposals are aimed at considering the range of measures that can be implemented locally which move us towards meeting and balancing the needs of all groups, such as:
- Increasing the number of available stopping places
- Minimising unauthorised encampments on the city’s parks and open spaces
- Tackling anti-social behaviour and other nuisance
- Improving community cohesion by increasing awareness and understanding
Your response to these proposals will help determine the coucnil's future priorities and actions which will be outlined in a Draft Strategy to be published on 28th November for further consultation.
The Consultation Paper together with a questionnaire for completion can be found on the Brighton & Hove City Council’s Website until 5th November. The Consultation Paper should be read before completing the questionnaire as it illustrates the issues and some practical and legal limitations in more detail.
You can also submit your response to the questions in the consultation to our housing strategy team in writing to FREEPOST RRRT-ETLH-KYSK, Housing Strategy Team (TS2012), Brighton & Hove City Council, Bartholomew House, Bartholomew Square, Brighton, BN1 1JE or by email email@example.com
