Final Policy HS 3 (Amended) 'Travellers Accommodation'

31 January 2013

The Department has today published the final version of policy HS 3 (Amended) ‘Travellers Accommodation’ of Planning Policy Statement 12 ‘Housing in Settlements’. This follows public consultation on the draft document published in July 2011. A summary of consultation responses report has also been produced.
Previously Policy HS 3 provided for grouped housing, serviced sites and transit sites for travellers within, adjoining or in close proximity to settlements. However, in rural areas, there was only provision for grouped housing and transit sites – not serviced sites. This amendment now provides policy for serviced sites for travellers outside settlements.
