PPS 12: Policy HS3 (Amended) 'Travellers Accommodation'

Issued by: Department of the Environment
Status: Final
Published: January 2013
This amendment provides policy for serviced sites for travellers outside settlements. 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.
With the Amendment to Policy HS 3 in this publication, Policy HS 3 contained within PPS 12, published in July 2005 is superseded.
