  • Standard accommodation in Local Authority/ Approved Housing Bodies/RAS/Leasing/HAP accommodation.
  • Group Housing which allows for the accommodation of a number of Traveller families at the one location in small estates.
  • Serviced Halting Sites - where Traveller’s caravans/mobile homes can be accommodated on bays which have serviced units.
