Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment 2017

In August 2017, Darlington Borough Council commissioned RRR Consultancy to undertake an update to the 2014 Darlington Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment (GTAA).The results from the 2017 Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment Update [pdf document] will be used as an evidence base for policy development in housing and planning, and to inform the allocation of resources.

The main reason for this 2017 update is due to changes in government guidance and legislation since the 2014 GTAA was undertaken and is based on secondary data and consultation with Gypsies and Travellers across Darlington for the need of pitches.
