Call for Sites

If you wish to promote a site to be developed for Gypsies and Travellers or Travelling Showpeople accommodation we would be very pleased to hear from you.   At this stage we are interested in all site options, within settlements or within the countryside, stand-alone sites and extensions to existing sites. 

Please use the ‘call for sites’ form, and attach a map showing the location and boundaries of the land in question.  Further information is set out on the site submission form.
