The Housing (Wales) Act 2014 introduces a new law where all Councils in Wales must find out how many pitches or sites they need and make sure, where there is a need identified, provide these pitches or sites.
As part of its duties set out in the Housing (Wales) Act 2014, Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council carried out a Gypsy and Traveller Accomodation Assessment in 2015 which has been approved by the Welsh Government.
The Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment was undertaken to assess the future accommodation needs of the Gypsy Traveller and Travelling Show People Communities and determine whether there is a requirement for additional site provision within Rhondda Cynon Taf.
The full assessment can be viewed here.
Please watch this short film where Gypsies and Travellers and people who work with them explain how important the new law is, why sites are vital, and the reasons to get your voice head.
