Council approves £1m transit traveller site

Council approves £1m transit traveller site image

Wolverhampton Council has approved plans for a new transit site for the traveller and gypsy community.

The council currently has a High Court injunction protecting vulnerable sites across the city from unauthorised encampments.

However, at the court hearing the council was asked to develop a transit site.

It said the new site at Gorsebrook Road would give the police greater powers to move travellers off unauthorised sites.

Cllr Steve Evans, the council's cabinet member for city environment, said: 'Since we obtained the injunction we have seen a vast reduction in unauthorised incursions, 75% to be exact.

'By developing a transit site, we are providing travellers with a place to stay short term as well as reducing incursions in the city.'
