Temporary planning permission granted for Halton gypsy site
Temporary planning permission has been granted for a gypsy/traveller site in Halton near Lancaster.
Councillors approved plans from Mr and Mrs F Varey to change the use of agricultural land off Foundry Lane to a gypsy/traveller site including two static caravans and three touring caravans, two utility blocks, the demolition of an existing stable and erection of a replacement stable building.
The plans also include the installation of a septic tank, regrading of land levels, and retention of hardstanding and 2.1m boundary fence.
But the plans have only been granted for a temporary period of three years.
Ten councillors voted in favour of the proposition and one against, with four abstentions.
