Copeland Borough Council are inviting landowners to nominate potential locations for Gypsy and traveller sites in the Borough. The nomination process is nearing its deadline.
A Cumbria-wide Gypsy and Traveller 'Accommodation Needs Assessment' is currently being produced to identify needs across the county.
The Council has a responsibility to meet the housing needs of all its residents including those who identify as gypsies, travellers or travelling showpeople under the Housing and Planning Act 2016.
A spokesperson from the council said: "Initial findings indicate there is a need for 12 permanent Gypsy and traveller pitches in Copeland up to the year 2035."
The nomination process runs until May 21, and full details on how to respond can be found online.
