A front-page article in a regional paper today claims that Moray Council is proposing to create 23 new traveller’s sites in the area.

This is not true.

The report referred to in the article clearly states that a need to accommodate 23 pitches – i.e. single caravans – has been identified as part of the draft Local Housing Strategy.

This important distinction was made clear to the reporter, but unfortunately the article published today does not reflect the accurate picture.

The draft Local Housing Strategy will shortly be open to public consultation and a final version will be presented to the Moray Council Communities Committee in due course.
