Temporary traveller sites for Marshes End and Broadstone Way refused planning permission at crunch meeting
The planning meeting taking place this morning at Poole’s Lighthouse Theatre has been lodged by the council’s own environmental and consumer protection services.
- Committee members will be debating and voting on plans for two temporary stopping sites for travellers and gypsies.
- These two separate proposals are for 12 pitches at Marshes End, Creekmoor, and four pitches at land north of the B&Q car park, Broadstone Way.
- Officials have argued that by having designated temporary stopping places within the borough, they hope to avoid a repeat of last summer that saw a number of unauthorised encampments encroach on the town’s parks and open spaces.
- However, full council decide in eight days time whether to take the latest £400,000 offer for Marshes End site in Creekmoor.
