Mechanism for the consideration of Unmet Gypsy and Traveller Need
This guidance note was adopted by the Essex Planning Officers Association in December 2018. It was recognised that there was a need to establish an agreed mechanism which all of the Local Planning Authorities in Essex could endorse and apply in the consideration and application of any unmet gypsy and traveller needs.

Essex Demographic forecasts
EPOA has commissioned a series of demographic forecasts. The scenarios have been defined by different parameters to include migration-led, dwelling-led and economic-led approaches to demographic forecasts.
The project is not intended to produce a recommended or preferred demographic forecast for any area. Rather the approach is to encourage examination of the demography of each area from different perspectives.
