Potential Gypsy sites in Stourport-on-Severn considered

Residents in part of Worcestershire have been asked to consider whether three sites should be allocated to Gypsies and travellers.

Wyre District Council has begun a six-week public consultation over the sites in Stourport-on-Severn.

Consultation lasts until 20 March over sites near The Gatehouse, Sandy Lane; at 28-29 Sandy Lane and 1a Broach Road.

The sites are in addition to three sites already earmarked for Gypsy and Traveller use.

The Conservative-run council will make a final decision over which sites will be included in its Local Development Framework for Gypsies and Travellers at a full council meeting on 29 February.

The council has previously indicated that 43 pitches were required in the next 11 years, with 28 of them needed in the next six years.

A public consultation over seven proposed sites took place in October and November.
