IMPORTANT Response Form

Now that the consultation is underway – we should all complete the ‘official’ consultation response forms. It is difficult to find the form on the BaNES website so we have posted it in here.

The  “Gyspies, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople Site allocation Development Plan Document (DPD) Preferred consultation” document and “response form” are important – we suggest you download both – using the links below.

The first link is their outlining document – very useful – “Gyspies, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople Site allocation Development Plan Document (DPD)”, it is a pfd document of 20 pages that summarises the 7 selected sites.

The lower 2 links are to the “Response Form” – (either as a .pdf or a .doc format). PLEASE download the response form, fill it in and send off (or leave at one of our pick up points). The form was updated after BaNES accepted that the original was “confusing”, but they will accept the old form if you have already sent one in.

IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU INCLUDE YOUR ADDRESS on completed forms.

120527-GT&TS-DPD-PreferredOptions

It is very important that we send in the response forms.

If you want further information on the process then the link to the BaNES site is below.
