Dale farm – closing the loopholes

Ministers to unveil crackdown on illegal travellers' sites

"Ministers are to unveil a crackdown on illegal travellers' camps as part of the Government's controversial planning reforms". "The rules will ban new traveller settlements on greenbelt land and stop councils from issuing compulsory purchase orders of private land to create new sites for such groups". "Mr Pickles is said to believe that Labour gave all travellers a bad name by failing to clamp down on illegal sites. It is understood he will argue that Labour’s approach to the travelling community harmed community cohesion and undermined public confidence in the planning system".
