The reception and accommodation for traveller communities in the Greater Paris - Métropole du Grand Paris - Extract from the Metropolitan Housing and Accommodation Plan (PMHH)

The jurisdiction “To develop, maintain and manage halting sites and rentable family land as defined in the 5 July 2000 Law” will be transferred to the Métropole du Grand Paris as soon as the PMHH becomes legally binding.

Until then, the legal responsibility remains in the hands of municipalities with over 5,000 inhabitants. Communes (smaller municipalities) can choose to transfer this legal authority partially or entirely: either to a group of communes by means of an intercommunal convention, or to a Public Intercommunal Cooperation Establishment (EPCI), or to an intercommunal syndicate.

The Departmental Reception Measures for Travelling communities (SDAGV) fix objectives for halting sites that are far from being met.

From a quantitative point of view the survey carried out in the diagnostic process of the Metropolitan Housing and  Accommodation Plan (PMHH) shows that in June 2017 the rate of achievement of these objectives was extremely low.

In addition to this, the types of accommodation proposed and the reception areas no longer correspond totally to the needs of travellers, some of whom wish to settle permanently in Métropole du Grand Paris.
