In July 2012 Lichfield District and Tamworth Borough Councils commissioned the Salford Housing & Urban Studies Unit (SHUSU) at the University of Salford to produce an updated Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Accommodation Assessment. The primary purpose of this assessment was to provide up to date information and data regarding the needs and requirements of the Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople communities. This report presents the projection of the requirements for the period 2012 – 2028. The assessment was undertaken by conducting a review of the following data sources: the previous assessment of need and information submitted through the previous regional planning process; the policy and guidance context; the bi-annual Caravan Count; information from the local authorities with regards to pitch provision and supply; information from key stakeholders; and a survey of thirty-eight Gypsy and Traveller households (twenty-one in Lichfield and seventeen in Tamworth).
