Traveller Accommodation Options

The Council provides and manages both standard and specialist accommodation for the traveller community.  A five year programme for the provision of accommodation for traveller families is in place which sets out the targets for the provision of various forms of accommodation such as the following:

  • Standard accommodation in local authority houses
  • 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.
