Proposed travellers site update

Proposed travellers site

On Thursday morning (July 30th), The Chairman of The Parish Council spoke to Cllr Rick Everett, The Leader of Thanet District Council.

He explained that the matrix used to inform Councillors about the proposed travellers’ site had material miscalculations.

The correct calculations lead to the overall totals for The Potten Street Road and Tivoli Brook sites having higher scores than other sites.  As the lowest scores were taken forward for the preferred sites this means that other sites had been eliminated without being considered.

Councillor Everett made the decision to withdraw item 4 on the agenda for last night’s Thanet District Councils cabinet meeting.  This now provides more time to consider what action to take.
