traveller site

The following is a news item from the Parish Council ....

At the Parish Council (PC) meeting last week the meeting noted that, following an appeal, the independent Planning Inspectorate had approved the traveller site established off the A51 road near Okells.

The Council was disappointed in this outcome but has to accept the position. The approval comes with a number of conditions and the main ones are summarised below. The PC will be seeking a meeting with CWaC Planning Enforcement to learn how these conditions will be monitored for compliance.

The actual approval is for a family traveller site consisting of 1 static caravan, 3 trailer caravans, a day room, septic tank and landscaping.

The conditions include:

No more than one commercial vehicle for use by the occupiers of the caravans to be stationed, parked or stored on the site

No commercial activities to take place on the land, including storage of materials

By 26th May 2024 a scheme to have been submitted to CWaC for written approval covering the following:

  • proposed and existing external lighting of the site
  • tree, hedge and shrub planting including details of species, plant sizes, proposed numbers and densities. Planting should take place in the first available planting season i.e. Autumn 2024. If any of these are removed, die or become diseased within 5 years of completion they should be replaced on a like-for-like basis.
  • details of secure storage for cycles.

CWaC has until 26th January 2025 to approve the scheme. If it does so then the development is automatically approved.
