PAS guidance for gypsies and travellers

In 2015 PAS worked on a Gypsy/Travellers planning awareness project funded by the Equality, Human Rights and Third Sector Division of the Scottish Government.

For Gypsy/Travellers, like the settled population, adequate housing is fundamental to health, education and access to employment. Without a secure place to stop or settle the fundamental human rights of Gypsy/Travellers can be severely compromised.

The key project purpose was to increase Gypsy/Travellers’ awareness and knowledge of the Scottish planning system, and improve engagement between Gypsy/Travellers, planning professionals, elected members and community councillors.

The conclusion of the project was the publication of five PAS guides on Gypsy/Travellers and the Scottish Planning System – the first time this has been done. The guides can be downloaded at the link below:

Please note that the original printed version of the Guide for Local Authorities had an error in Appendix 2 (Case Study 3). The full text for this has now been replaced in the online version (September 2016).

  1. Gypsy/Travellers and the Scottish Planning System – A Guide for Gypsy/Travellers
  2. Gypsy/Travellers and the Scottish Planning System – A Guide for Local Authorities
  3. Gypsy/Travellers and the Scottish Planning System – A Guide for Elected Members
  4. Gypsy/Travellers and the Scottish Planning System – A Guide for Community Councillors
  5. Gypsy/Travellers and the Scottish Planning System – A Briefing for the Media

These PAS guides were officially launched by Marco Biagi, Minister for Local Government & Community Empowerment, on 1 April 2015 in Perth Concert Hall.
