Poor sight for visitors

Bournemouth Echo: Poor sight for visitors Poor sight for visitors

As a town Poole relies heavily on visitors and the holiday trade.

Could I point this out to the supposedly knowledgeable councillors who have approved a travellers camp at the end of the main arterial road out and in to the town.

The first and last impressions of visitors will be of a travellers transit camp (after the wonderfully landscaped roundabout).

Not a good impression, surely – or do they intend to screen it at more cost?

Surely a less public space would be far more suitable? Why do they think that the tidy up costs will go away if they approve a site.

I would suggest that it will be up to us, the council tax payers, to fund cleaning up the transit site otherwise it will be refused to be used?

I think another matter our wonderful councillors seemed to have overlooked, is the health and safety requirements for a transit camp. In respect of any children that may be using that site located next to a very busy dual carriageway and also the restrictions it may well put on the fire station there.

Just two additional factors that should have been taken into consideration according to the Government spec of temporary transit sites.
