Not holiday caravans, but permanent live-in vehicles on a permanent council-provided site?

could you please specify what you mean by "define"? Do you mean how to map or do you just search for the tag(s)?

As for the area itself, we've been using landuse=residential, residential=halting_site in Ireland. Not very many in the db yet, but it has consensus between a few mappers. Those sites sometimes have some permanent buildings too.

Oddly enough the same discussion happened here in French, with the same recommendation as @Vincent de Philly gave above:

Thanks, I vaguely remembered answering the same question before, but was too lazy to search.

The discussion also came following this note (on the note itself and in IRC), which makes me feel that residential=halting_site is slowly reaching consensus.

Hi JustStupid, there are a few traveller sites. Most of them are described as building=static_caravan but no surroundings or extra tags. Consider building=mobile_caravan or building=traveller_caravan as a tag.
