Newport City Council has made an application for: Change of use of dwelling and land to Gypsy and Traveller site together with construction of new single storey amenity block: at Yew Tree Cottage, Bettws, NP20 7AE.
It is intended that Severalls Lane, Colchester will accommodate the largest permanent Gypsy and Travellers Site in North East Essex.
If this goes ahead the site will be located on the east side of Severalls Lane on the the north side of the A12. It will be approximately a 3 minute walk from Rapid Electronics.
The Severalls Lane Action Group want to stop this now!
The Colchester Borough Council Planning Committee are meeting at 6pm on Thursday the 4th of November at the Moot Hall, Colchester Town Hall. All are welcome although the capacity is 250. Please come!
***SAVE BOURNEMOUTH FROM TOWN CENTRE TRAVELLER SITE***
Bournemouth Borough Council has announced a proposal for a Traveller site on the junction of Suffolk Rd/Cambridge Rd - right in the middle of Bournemouth Town Centre.
This directly conflicts with the Council's town centre master vision which includes the redevelopment of the Triangle area, adjacent to the proposed site - as well as the Council’s desire to make Bournemouth a tourist hotspot and desirable UK holiday location.
Having this in the town centre WILL affect -
* Pubs and clubs
* Bournemouth's reputation
The impact of traveller sites in town/city locations is well known to -
* Reduce property prices
* Increase anti-social behaviour
* Increase crime rates
* Increase littering
The recommended location is next to –
* Children’s playground
* Elderly residents
* All town centre residents
* School run
* Bournemouth’s beautiful gardens (tourism attraction)
This recommendation will be put to Cabinet on 24 June 2009.
***YOU NEED TO SIGN THIS PETITION AGAINST THE LOCATION OF THIS PROPOSED SITE IMMEDIATELY***
We also STRONGLY RECOMMEND you attend the cabinet meeting at 10.30am at Bournemouth Town Hall on Wednesday 24 June to show your support.
