We’ve previously posted on where Travellers sites could be allocated in the Rochford District. Here’s a list for quick reference
This should be noted is ONE of the options – other options for travellers sites are set out in Fig 2.1 & Fig 2.2
The consultation will be on the Gypsy and Traveller Issues Paper which can be downloaded from the Rochford District Councils website here
We are inviting comments on the Gypsy and Traveller Issues Paper and its accompanying Draft Sustainability Appraisal from 25 February 2019 until

All representations must be accompanied by a name, address and, if applicable, email address. The Council cannot accept anonymous representations.
The Council will also not accept representations that are of an abusive, discriminatory or defamatory nature and any such representations received will be rejected.
All comments accepted as duly-made will be logged on the Council’s online public consultation system and will be available to view at the earliest opportunity.
The Council will seek to engage with local communities, businesses and other consultees throughout this consultation in accordance with its Statement of Community Involvement (SCI). The SCI 2016, available on the Council website, sets out the ways in which it will publicise the consultation opportunity and manage the consultation itself.
Following the consultation, the Council will consider any representations received and use these to inform its subsequent approach to planning for Gypsy and Traveller accommodation needs. The Council intends to publish a ‘Feedback Report’ in due course to summarise and provide an initial response to the issues, opportunities and comments raised through this consultation.
