Chelmsford Ideas Festival / Gypsies and Travelers the Forgotten Housing Need (A World Planning Day Event)
November 8, 2016 @ 18:00 - 20:00 GMT
The Chelmsford Ideas Festival has several events under the umbrella of ‘Your City’ supported by The Academy of Urbanism.
Travelling people do not fit easily with our society and we only hear about threat, mess and eviction. The origins and culture of these people is not well understood and we have never found it easy to find land for travellers’ housing. This event explores how planning and housing practice has to embrace this hot potato. Speaker Prof Robert Home.
