Residents in Swansea can give their views on plans to create a second gypsy and traveller site in the city.

Swansea's only permanent site is fully occupied and under current legislation local authorities are responsible for providing sufficient space for gypsies and travellers.

Swansea Council has launched a three-month consultation which ends in March 2013.

Dedicated web pages on the Council's main website have been created which give out full details of the process adopted by the Council and how more than 1,000 council-owned sites have been assessed.

A hard copy of all the information on the website is also now available at the Council's Civic Centre and can be viewed on request, along with hard copies of the consultation document.

Libraries across the city are also available for residents who may not have access to a computer at home.

Visitors to the civic centre can also view an exhibition which will be on display from 21 - 25 January, 25 February - March 1 and from March 18 - 28.

The Council is also mailing consultation forms out to residents who may have difficulties getting to a library or to the Civic Centre. Forms can be posted on request by calling (01792) 635600.

David Phillips, Leader of the Council, said: "The Council wants the public to play a full part in this process and people will have until the end of March to give us their views.

"No decisions have been made about any site and none will be until after the public consultation has been completed."
