Representations on New Local Plan Options - Q6. Would you like to submit any potential sites to accommodate gypsies and travellers, or travelling showpeople?
COMMENT Mr John L. Marlow
Nothing more than the statutory minimum.
COMMENT Cllr Rosita Page
Lutterworth and surrounding area is already oversubscribed with Gypsy and Showmen sites. Sites should be subservient to surrounding conurbations, well positioned and must meet needs. Pitches should only be allocated to genuine G/T or showmen who are members of the Guild.
The description of pitches is misleading. It must be clearly stated that a pitch can accommodate up to 4 caravans.
COMMENT Miss Ruth Thompson
Lutterworth and surrounding area already has more than its fair share of G/T and showmen sites
COMMENT Mr Simon Smith
Lutterworth and surrounding area is already over subscribed with gypsy and traveller and show people sites
COMMENT Mrs Angela Lomas
The most sensible solution would be to extend the existing sites.
COMMENT CLAYBROOKE PARVA Parish Council (Maurice C Howell)
The Lutterworth area has adequate sites for Gypsies and Travelling Showpeople and well over subscribed
COMMENT Mr Ian Duffield
I think it is important that space and plots are allocated proportionally to any area, thus we must manage the number of plots made available.. A cap on development in and around Lutterworth, Bitteswell and Ullesthorpe would seem appropriate. Significant number of plots already exist in these areas, relative to the site of these locations.
COMMENT Mrs Joy Burgoine
I consider that the further addition to plots is inappropriate because of the extra traffic using the by=pass, Whittle island the Lutterworth and a drain on the local resources, already stretched, e.g. schooling and medical centre.
