The Outcomes of the Consultation on County Council Owned Traveller Sites

The County Council own three Traveller sites, in Lancaster, Hyndburn and Preston. The City/Borough Councils undertake the day to day management of the sites on our behalf.


At the meeting of Full Council on 14 February 2019, it was proposed to declare the sites surplus to the County Council's needs, generating a saving of £131,000 relating to the maintenance and running costs, subject to the outcome of a full consultation on the proposal. 


This report outlines the results of the public consultation, and the equality analysis, ensuring cabinet is provided with appropriate information when considering the options.
