What is the GTANA?

The Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Needs Assessment (GTANA) is used to help with the preparation of development plan policies for the provision of new gypsy and traveller pitches and travelling show-people plots in the borough. This ensures that local authorities comply with planning policy and legislation. The report was completed in October 2016.

  • South Cambridgeshire
  • East Cambridgeshire
  • Huntingdonshire
  • Peterborough
  • Kings Lynn & West Norfolk
  • Forest Heath and St Edmundsbury
