After some consideration, the Council RESOLVED to object for the following grounds: Increase from 6 to 10 pitches is considered as overdevelopment of this site; There is insufficient space on the site to accommodate 10 pitches and this overdevelopment will not allow amenity space for the children to play safely and will therefore be contrary to the government guidelines for gypsy and traveller sites; The increase will not allow sufficient space for vehicles and mobiles to turn in safety.
