UPDATE: Poole council backs transit sites for travellers
Councillors will be asked to approve the sites at Marshes End, Creekmoor, and land north of the B&Q car park, Broadstone Way at a meeting tonight
They will also be asked to authorise a planning application to enable the borough to establish these temporary stopping places by the summer.
The council estimates it will cost £175,000 to construct the site at Marshes End, and up to £70,000 at Broadstone Way.
Last October Borough of Poole held a summit to try to find solutions to the perceived traveller problem, where it was agreed to explore the transit site option
