Draft Policy HS 3 (Amended) Travellers Accommodation

Published on Thu, 7 Jul 2011 by planning.policy@doeni.gov.uk.
The Minister of the Environment has today published the above draft policy for public consultation. The Amendment to Policy HS 3 of PPS 12 furthers the Minister’s commitment to meeting the distinctive accommodation needs of travellers.
This consultation ended on Fri, 30 Sep 2011 at 0:00am


The existing policy HS 3 contained in PPS 12 provides for grouped housing, serviced sites, and transit sites for travellers within, adjoining or in close proximity to settlements. However, outside settlements there is only limited provision for grouped housing and transit sites – not serviced sites. This amendment provides policy for serviced sites for travellers outside settlements.
In tandem with this consultation an equality screening exercise is also being issued for public consultation as an Annex to the draft Amendment.
