  • We recognise the conflicting pressures that the Plan has to address in meeting the national and JCS policy requirements to identify sites for Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople households, and to protect and enhance the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
  • We draw attention to the deliberate decision to time-limit the permission to occupy the Castle Dream Stud site and limitation to its occupation only by a named family.
  • In our view this, retrospective, acceptance of occupation for a temporary period and the policy need to identify sites within the Borough, does not provide grounds for its suitability for selection as a permanent site within the protected area of the Cotswolds AONB.
Do you consider it necessary to participate at the Examination in Public? No
