No specific guidance is produced in relation to the accessibility of traveller sites, however the National Planning Policy Framework is clear that local planning policy and decisions should ensure that developments create places that are safe, inclusive and accessible and which promote health and well-being, with a high standard of amenity for existing and future users.

Any permanent structures would also be subject to Part M of the Building Regulations, which require buildings to meet minimum accessibility standards.
