Gypsy Site

At the recent Parish Council meeting (Monday March 27th) it was noted that the Tarvin Residents Group have been invited to meet the CW&C Task Force that is considering the whole problem of finding suitable sites for the Traveller community. The inclusion of a site on Council owned land on Tarporley Road has caused great consternation and alarm within the village. Tarvin is not the only community up in arms at the possible sites suggested.

The meeting is on April 28th and the residents group will be allocated 5 minutes to put their case, though they have presented a lengthy written submission. The meeting is by invitation only and the Chair of the Task Force has also decided that no records or minutes of these meetings will be published. The Parish Council had requested to address the Task Force but an invitation to attend has not been issued to them. They have also submitted a statement objecting to the site in the strongest possible terms.

Concern was raised that one of the Borough Councillors on the Task Force had recently resigned but were assured that a substitute would be appointed so that the work could continue. The importance of this issue to many communities cannot be overstated.
