A council is holding a special meeting to discuss the number and location of future Travellers’ pitches, two of which are earmarked in the Harborough area.
Kettering Council’s planning policy group is meeting at 7pm on Wednesday, February 19, where the committee will be considering the 1,240 responses to its Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation consultation carried out in June and July last year.
The council needs to increase the number of pitches for Travellers by 37 over the next two decades until 2031.
Members of the public are welcome to attend and address the meeting, in the council chamber of the authority’s Bowling Green Road offices.
Ten pitches have already been identified, but as part of the consultation the council identified eight main areas where the remaining 27 plots could be located, including off Stoke Albany Road in Desborough and Springfields, north-west of Braybrooke.
The agenda will be published during the week commencing Monday, February 3.
