Council Traveller sites

Southwark Council is about to make further changes to council traveller site rules:

http://moderngov.southwark.gov.uk/mgIssueHistoryHome.aspx?IId=50000892&Opt=0 

Amazingly it has a stated presumption that pitch prices will never change by more than inflation (RPI). The unlimited right of succession to pitches for family members. Allowing for very extended periods for traveller site tenants to leave the site and the pitch be reserved for them.

This appears unfair. Council Housing tenants have a right of succession of one generation. Providing for unlimited succession appears very odd. Am I missing something?

What do you think?
