Change Use Of Land For Siting Of Caravans For Residential Occupation As a Private Gypsy/Traveller Site Comprising One Static Mobile Home And Three Touring Caravans With HardStanding And Cess Pool (retrospective)
Illegal travellers sites continue to be applied for as 'legal' either through the local Council planning process or via appeal with the government planning inspector. This is the latest application and without an allocated travellers site we would think the Council have no other option other than to approve this application. It will need to find a very good reason if it decides to refuse the application as an appeal would not only cost the Council money but add to further embarrassment in its failure to deliver the allocated site defined in the core strategy.
The District Council has really found itself in a sticky situation with residents and parishes as they all wonder what will they do to stop the continuance of illegal pitches throughout the district.
