The government are attempting to scrap the Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Needs Assessments which is used to determine how many more pitches are required in any given area. These assessments help provide sites so it will be a disastrous if they are abolished. These changes are part of the Housing and Planning Bill which the government are currently trying to push through parliament.
