Traveller Accommodation Assessment

The Travellers' Accommodation Assessment 2017 identifies how many of the following we need:

  • pitches for Gypsies and Travellers
  • plots for Travelling Showpeople

For planning purposes these groups are collectively referred to as 'travellers'. Gypsies and Travellers tend to call the land they live on a 'pitch' and Travelling Showpeople call it a 'plot' or 'yard'.

From 16 January to 1 February 2017, our consultants Mill Field Services talked to local travellers to find out about:

  • overcrowding
  • whether travellers are doubled up on pitches or plots
  • likely housing needs of young adults over the next five years

We analysed feedback from the interviews alongside other data. This meant we could work out the need for new pitches and plots in Guildford. Find out how we involved stakeholders in the Traveller Accommodation Assessment Consultation Record 2017 (PDF) [906KB] (opens new window) .
