Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment

Gypsey Pitch

In line with Government guidance, a joint Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment (GTAA) has been undertaken with other Hampshire authorities to quantify the need for Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople pitches across Hampshire to 2027. The GTAA identifies a current provision of 13 permanent Gypsy pitches in the borough with an estimated current need for two further pitches. The GTAA calculates the cumulative future need (excluding the existing need for two pitches) as:

• Total by 2017 = 4 pitches
• Total by 2022 = 7 pitches
• Total by 2027 = 10 pitches

The GTAA also identifies a figure for transit sites and Travelling Showpeople sites across Hampshire but recommends that further work is required between authorities. The GTAA is to be considered by the Hampshire Joint Authorities Gypsy and Traveller Panel (JAGTP) which is being reconvened for the first time in four years.
