Gypsy and Traveller Local Plan - Scope and Options Consultation

North Northamptonshire Council (NNC) is preparing a plan to address the accommodation needs of Gypsy and Travellers in North Northamptonshire.

The Scope and Options Consultation invites views on what should be included in the plan and represents the first stage in the preparation of the plan. As part of this process a Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report has been prepared. The purpose of the sustainability appraisal is to appraise the social, environmental, and economic effects of the plan from the outset of plan preparation.
