Town Council Tackles District Council Over Lack of Action on Allocation of Travellers Sites

onlineFOCUS has learned that Rayleigh Town Council has written to Rochford District Council over it's inability to deliver an allocated travellers pitch(s) in the DIstrict, which has led to illegal sites and criticism from government planning inspectors.
