Decision details

Gypsy Traveller Service - Pitch Fees 2019/20

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Community Safety

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The report is to request permission to increase the pitch fees on both SCC sites for the coming financial year. 2019/20


That from 6th May 2019 the fees for each pitch on the Council’s Gypsy and Traveller sites at Longacre and Redmires will increase by £3.06 (3.3%) to £95.76 per week

Reasons for the decision:

The proposed increase is in accordance with the completion of the local convergence policy agreed by the Cabinet Member for Homes and Regeneration in February 2012 and the terms of the Written Statement in relation to the Mobile Homes Act 1983 agreed by him in May 2011 and issued to each occupier of both sites.

Alternative options considered:

No increase in pitch fees in 2019/20 – this option would mean that income into the account did not keep pace with cost inflation.
