Some people don’t care what they allow as long as it’s not in their back yard.

We are being told gypsy sites are to be considered in our vicinities. This will probably exclude certain councillors’ areas, particularly the ones belonging to those who are suggesting the sites. Names are known and are in the black book.

Our areas still have their black spots which need attention, which will look worse with the building of new housing and once again these people are jumping in head first. They should remember they were elected to serve the constituents who are their first and utmost priority.
