Travelling showpeople given go-ahead for site

June 27 2017

avelling showpeople can be created in Yate, planners have decided.

SEVEN further plots for travelling showpeople can be created in Yate, planners have decided.

An application for the plots on land in North Road has been approved, which will put them next to an established site for showpeople at Acres Fair.

Iron Acton Parish Council had objected to the scheme on the grounds that the site was outside the settlement boundary.

It also raised concerns about traffic, noise and the effect on local amenities.

But planning officers said there was an unmet need for such accommodation in South Gloucestershire.
