Campaigners launch petition against Ladywell camp site

Residents of Church Grove in Ladywell have launched a petition against the Council's plans to develop a camp site at the end of their road. They say:

This is absolutely not about prejudice towards travellers. It is about access, safety and common sense. The proposal is simply absurd. Travellers' caravans are typically 2.55 m wide. Access on our road is 2.5 m. The site is on a flood plain, in a conservation area and can only accommodate five pitches. It does not meet the needs of travellers.
