Travelling People: Planning Permission

Volume 478: debated on Monday 23 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what support or funding Planning Aid has given to Traveller groups on (a) planning applications, (b) planning appeals and (c) High Court challenges. (212628)

Planning Aid offers support to Traveller groups on planning applications and appeals both through its casework and community planning activities. Planning Aid would normally refer cases involving a High Court challenge to organisations that specialise in supporting this process.

Planning Aid does not provide direct funding for Traveller groups, nor would it support their legal costs.
