Kings Meadows
Brecon Beacons, Wales

Kings Meadow is the first new Traveller Site built in Wales since 1997. The development is an outstanding
illustration of partnership working, clear leadership and excellent stakeholder engagement.
The new site provides 10 pitches to meet an identified accommodation need and offers safety,
security and benefits from satisfactory modern living conditions that will consequently improve health,
education and wellbeing and give the families a decent quality of living for the first time in generations.

The families are an important part of the cultural heritage of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Good practice
guidance recognises that the Traveller population in Wales is ethnically diverse and one of the most socially excluded
groups in Britain. Avoiding frequent forced movement through eviction is seen as pivotal to tackling social exclusion.

King's Meadows wins Welsh Housing Award

Powys Council's housing service won the promoting equality and accessibility category at the Welsh Housing Awards for the Kings Meadow Traveller site. The awards are organised by the Chartered Institute of Housing Cymru and recognise good practice.
