PPS 12: Draft Policy HS 3 (Amended) Travellers Accommodation

The Amendment to Policy HS 3 of PPS 12 furthers the Minister’s commitment to meeting the distinctive accommodation needs of travellers.
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.
All responses should be emailed to: or sent by post to:
