We have some concerns about this paragraph which does seem to suggest that there is an alternative to site allocation to meet needs. Circular 1/2006 is clear that allocations must be made to meet identified needs. This paragraph should be amended to fully reflect Circular 1/2006.

We have concerns that policy CS18 restricts itself to a commitment only to make provision identified to 2011. The policy should give a commitment to meeting needs post 2011 and to make allocations on the basis of a 3% compound growth rate whilst committing itself to take on board evidence coming forward from a new GTAA if and when it is produced. Unless this is done the core strategy will be internally inconsistent and will not be consistent with regional policy.

Though welcome this statement does not go far enough. Monitoring should include net changes in numbers of permanent and transit pitches, pitches with temporary permission and unauthorised developments and encampments for Gypsies and Travellers.
