Advice for Travellers
Updated: 17 Dec 2017
We have strategic responsibility for accommodation for the Irish Traveller community in Northern Ireland. The Housing Order (NI) 2003 transferred ownership of and responsibility for Traveller serviced sites from district councils to the Housing Executive.
Local district offices are responsible for:
- the management of serviced sites in their area
- the allocation of pitches on serviced sites
- transit sites in their area.
We work with the Department for Social Development and registered housing associations to provide suitable accommodation for Travellers and to improve living conditions wherever possible.
