Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment

Published: Monday 6 April 2020

Your Future, Your Say 15/02/2020 - 10/04/2020


To speak with the Council, please telephone 01495 354600
E-mail: housing@blaenau-gwent.gov.uk
or visit the Housing Advice Centre, 20 Church Street, Ebbw Vale, Gwent, NP23 4AL

 

Part 3 of the Housing (Wales) Act 2014 requires local authorities in Wales to undertake a Gypsy and Traveller accommodation assessment and, where an unmet need is identified, to make provision for residential site pitches. We therefore need to talk to the Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople communities to find out whether your family needs a residential pitch, house or transit site.

The definition of the target community as it appears in Section 108 of the Housing (Wales) Act 2014 is:

Persons of a nomadic habit of life, whatever their race or origin, including:

  • persons who, on grounds only of their own or their family’s or dependant’s educational or health needs or old age, have ceased to travel temporarily or permanently, and

  • members of an organized group of travelling show people or circus people (whether or not travelling together as such); and

  • all other persons with a cultural tradition of nomadism or of living in a mobile home

The assessment is meant to be carried out every 5 years but Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council are conducting ours earlier in relation to the development of the Local Development Plan (LDP).

We are hoping to talk to as many families and individuals as possible before the 23rd March 2020 in order to produce a robust evaluation of need in Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council. Information collected during the survey will be used to determine how many pitches are needed within the county, both now and in the future. Any personal data gathered will be held under our privacy notice which is available on the Council’s website.

The GTAA will be carried out in accordance with statutory guidance issued by Welsh Government available at: Gypsy and traveller accommodation assessments: guidance.

If you have any further questions about the assessment, or if you would like to take part in the survey, please email housing@blaenau-gwent.gov.uk or telephone 01495 354600.

Asesiad Llety Sipsiwn a Theithwyr

Published: Thursday 12 March 2020

Eich Dyfodol, Eich Llais 15/02/2020 - 16/03/2020


I siarad gyda’r Cyngor ffoniwch 01495 354600
E-bost: housing@blaenau-gwent.gov.uk
neu ymweld â’r Ganolfan Cyngor Tai, 20 Stryd yr Eglwys, Glynebwy,NP23 4AL

 

Mae Rhan 3 Deddf Tai (Cymru) 2014 yn ei gwneud yn ofynnol i awdurdodau lleol yng Nghymru gynnal asesiad llety Sipsiwn a Theithwyr a lle dynodir na chaiff angen ei ddiwallu, i wneud darpariaeth ar gyfer lleiniau safleoedd preswyl. Rydym felly angen siarad gyda’r cymunedau Sipsiwn, Teithwyr a Siewmyn Teithiol i ganfod os yw eich teulu angen llain breswyl, tŷ neu safle tramwy.

Y diffiniad o’r gymuned darged a roddir yn Adran 108 Deddf (Tai) Cymru yw:

  • personau sydd, ar sail eu hanghenion addysg, eu hanghenion iechyd neu eu henaint eu hunain, neu anghenion addysg, anghenion iechyd neu henaint eu teulu neu ddibynnydd, ac ar y sail honno yn unig, wedi rhoi’r gorau i deithio dros dro yn barhaol, a

  • aelodau o grŵp trefnedig o siewmyn teithiol neu bersonau sy’n rhan o syrcasau teithiol (pa un a ydynt yn cyd-deithio mewn grŵp o’r fath a peidio); a

  • unrhyw bersonau eraill sydd â thraddodiad diwylliannol o nomadiaeth neu o fyw mewn cartref symudol

Bwriedir cynnal yr asesiad bob 5 mlynedd ond mae Cyngor Bwrdeistref Sirol Blaenau Gwent yn cynnal ein hasesiad ni yn gynharach yng nghyswllt datblygu’r Cynllun Datblygu Lleol.

Gobeithiwn siarad gyda chynifer o deuluoedd ac unigolion ag sydd modd cyn 23 Mawrth 2020 er mwyn paratoi gwerthusiad cadarn o angen yng Nghyngor Bwrdeistref Sirol Blaenau Gwent. Defnyddir gwybodaeth a gesglir yn ystod yr arolwg i benderfynu faint o leiniau sydd eu hangen o fewn y sir, yn awr a hefyd yn y dyfodol. Caiff unrhyw ddata bersonol a gesglir ei chadw dan ein hysbysiad preifatrwydd sydd ar gael ar wefan y Cyngor.

Cynhelir y GTAA yn unol â chanllawiau statudol a gyhoeddwyd gan Lywodraeth Cymru sydd ar gael yn: Asesiadau llety sipsiwn a theithwyr: canllawiau.

Os oes gennych unrhyw gwestiynau pellach am yr asesiad, neu os hoffech gymryd rhan yn yr arolwg, anfonwch e-bost at  housing@blaenau-gwent.gov.uk neu ffonio 01495 354600.
