Gypsy and Traveller Residential Site Consultation

Why are we doing this?

The Welsh Government requires all councils to carry out a Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment.  The work in Denbighshire has identified the need for one permanent residential Gypsy and Traveller site with 6 pitches and a transit Gypsy and Traveller site with 4-5 pitches.


This consultation is for the residential Gypsy and Traveller site.



What do we want to know?

The proposal is to develop a residential Gypsy and Traveller site at Green-gates Farm East near St Asaph.  This land has been identified following an extensive search and a call for land, including consideration of the Council’s own property.


We are seeking comments and observations on the plans for this proposal.  A summary of comments and representations will be included in a report to be submitted with any formal planning application.


Only comments made on land use planning issues will be taken into account in the development of the final planning application.  For example, the following are not normally accepted as planning issues:


  • Moral Issues
  • Personal circumstances
  • Impact on property values
  • The identify of an applicant
  • Fear of competition


You may submit comments or representations on the proposal using the link below or by writing to:

Gypsy and Traveller Consultation, PO BOX 62, Ruthin, LL15 1AZ


Name and address details must be included in all postal submissions in order to be considered.

The closing date for the pre-planning consultation is set out below.  Any comments received after the deadline may not be taken into account.


(26.10.2018) Please note due to an error on the form the draft planning application document has been updated


(13.11.2018) Due to some technical difficulties with the consultation portal between 26 and 29 October, some individuals may have experienced difficulty in accessing information or to leave comments on the consultations for both proposals.


We would like to apologise for this and we have extended the consultation for an additional four days, to allow people the opportunity to get involved in the consultation.  The new closing date is now November 25th.
