Gypsy Site

At the recent Parish Council meeting it was reported that Cheshire West and Chester Council (CW&C) has
restarted the work to identify suitable sites for gypsies, travellers and travelling show-people in the Borough.

Residents will remember the previous exercise carried out by CWaC which identified possible sites in Tarvin Parish. The Parish Council (PC) is working with a consultant to try to ensure that CWaC's choice of suitable sites is based on comprehensive, balanced and objective criteria. The PC hopes that its consultant's report can influence CW&C's thinking and reinforce the view that Tarvin (which is not on a traditional travellers' route) is not a suitable place for such a site.
