Gypsies? Not in our backyard says Cranbrook – send ’em to Ottery!

” …The development around Cranbrook is placing considerable pressure on surrounding villages and it is felt that these villages should not be the location for any new sites.

“We note that commentary on and around the plan process seems to assume that a new traveller site will be at or near Cranbrook. We feel that this commentary is prejudicial to an objective assessment.”

Mr Randle [Cranbrook Town Clerk] suggested further exploration of the current showmen stopping site at Clyst St Mary and land at Daisymount near to the M5 corridor.”
