The Joint Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government will tomorrow (Wednesday) meet with the Expert Group on Traveller Accommodation at 9.30am in Committee Room 1, Leinster House.

The three-person Expert Group comprising barrister David Joyce (Chairman), Dr Conor Norton, Head of School of Transport Engineering, Environment and Planning, Technological University Dublin, and Professor Michelle Norris, School of Social Policy, Social Work and Social Justice, University College Dublin, presented their report to the Government in July.

Speaking ahead of the meeting, Committee Chairman Noel Rock TD said: “The Traveller Accommodation Expert Group was established in 2018 to review the Traveller Accommodation Act 1998 and other legislation impacting on the provision and delivery of accommodation for Travellers. This was on foot of previous commitments that the adequacy of arrangements for delivering accommodation for Travellers should be examined. The Committee looks forward to discussing the report and its recommendations with Dr Norton and Professor Norris.”
