Debate needed over gypsy sites

IN the Battle Observer paper dated February 22 2013 concerning gypsy pitches.

We live opposite the site at Flimwell, which we have done for the last 48 years.

It was and still is agricultural ground.

I would like to point out that Ms Delahunt, who is a gypsy, and Mr Lindsay, who is not, went to appeal on August 29 2012.

This being the same month as Linda Smith following several appeals as well.

Cllr Field told the committee she wasn’t in agreement over Beeches Brook because it gives out the wrong message. This is the same at Flimwell.

When is Cllr Jenkins and his committee going to call a public meeting with those it concerns, instead of being behind closed doors making decisions.
