Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Needs

Following the Housing Act 2004, all Local Authorities are required to assess the accommodation needs of Gypsies and Travellers and set out how these needs will be met.

In 2008, a Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment was carried out for Northamptonshire. This was updated in 2011.
