Plans To Make Travellers' Site Near Tadcaster Permanent
5:27pm 17th February 2014
Plans to make a travellers' site near Tadcaster permanent will be discussed this afternoon.
The proposed permanent gypsy site "The Gallops" would be located on the southern side of the settlement of Towton within the towns Green Belt.
There have been a large number of objections to the plans to allow the site to be set up.
The report says Towton Parish Council's fundamental concern is that this proposal "represents inappropriate development in an area of Green Belt.
"The Parish Council believes strongly that no residential development of any type should be permitted on this site and we have always opposed applications for stables and other forms of development on this site and other Green Belt land on the edge of Towton."
However, planners in Selby are recommending it goes ahead because of family circumstances and the need to breed horses.
