There is a current planning application to create a 10 family caravan site for Travelling families in the Green Belt in Grappenhall, located at the corner of Broad Lane and Cartridge Lane.
One family have bought this land and obtained time limited license to stay, for 2 families for 3 years in 2009. This planning has expired and as predicted to Warrington Borough Council during the original application, a further application for development has now been submitted. The new application requests permission to site 12 caravans along with various utility buildings and commercial storage areas within the plot.
This is blatant manipulation of the guidelines set out to provision for Travellers and is taking advantage of WBC's failure to provide the requisite number of pitches out of their own selection of waste land and Brown Field sites which are much better situated in relation to shops/schools etc.
Please sign this petition to try and convince WBC against agreeing to this 200%+ expansion on existing allocation. Nobody has any issue with the existing set up, in its temporary format, but allowing 10+ families to move in is a clear attempt to create a large community while ignoring planning considerations that the rest of the non Travelling community must abide by.
