Traveller plan set to be turned down
11:00am Thursday 3rd January 2013 in News
PLANS for 10 new traveller caravans to move onto land in Grappenhall are set to be turned down.
The Smith family want to extend current permission, granted in 2008, for two mobile homes on land at Cartridge Lane in the village.
But they also want to site 10 new caravans on the land.
The application is set to be discussed by members of the development management committee, today, Thursday.
Planning officers have recommended the scheme be refused, claiming it is overdevelopment in the green belt.
Mr Mowat says the increase to 10 caravans would be too great in the countryside.
