Community set to have its say on site for family of travellers
A PUBLIC consultation is being held to discuss a potential site for a family of travellers.
The woodyard at Homesford, near Matlock, has been nominated as a possible choice for a planning application.
Derbyshire Dales District Council, which has a legal obligation to find a site for the family, is continuing to search for other suitable locations. The authority is holding a public meeting at 7pm on Wednesday, March 27, at Wirksworth Leisure Centre, to which residents, businesses and parish council members have been invited to have their say.
A council spokesman said: "While the choice of Homesford was not unanimously popular among members, we must reiterate the district council's legal obligation to identify a site for the traveller family in question."
