    Just wondering..........If it wasn't a traveller that was challenging the right to park on green belt land and just someone not from the travelling community wanting planing permission for something. Would it have been reported in some newspaper or posted on Motorhome FUN.

    From the story in the link
    I think it is those (unusual) grounds that make it newsworthy, Dave, as the result will have wide significance both for the traveller community and local authorities.

    I have no doubt it will have very wide significance Graham. Lets just hope it does not turn into another excuse to bash the travellers.

    At least they asked for planning permission rather than just putting it up over a weekend!:Smile:

    There are some very nicely set up 'gens de voyage' sites between Louviers and Evreux off the N154. Not that I'm suggesting they go there!:ROFLMAO:

    I hope that, whatever the outcome, it is resolved quickly and amicably. I do find it disappointing, though, that the family lived on the land before applying for planning permission rather than the other way about.

    It isn't all that long ago that we had the wasteful saga of Peter Howell not far away from here and many still remember the Albert Dryden case even though it is over 20 years ago. Both could have been avoided easily.

    It's one rule for them and another rule for everyone else.

    I doubt the authenticity of modern so called travellers if they are true Romany, then fine but very very few of them are.

    Anyway if your a "Traveller" why do you need planning permission?


    If you stay in just one place you are not a "Traveller".
