We want to ensure the accommodation needs of gypsies and travellers are properly assessed.

Local authorities have a duty to undertake gypsy and traveller accommodation assessments (GTAAs) under the Housing (Wales) Act 2014.

Local authorities should also have regard to the Welsh Government’s managing unauthorised camping guidance when responding to unauthorised encampments in their area.
