Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment

We are committed to meeting the housing needs of all sections of our community. For some gypsies and travellers, appropriate housing means designated sites rather than 'bricks and mortar' housing.

The Accommodation Assessment, August 2012, provides information about the needs of gypsies and travellers.
