I would make the following observations with regard to the plan to make permanent the travellers  site on Mill Lane.

This site was bought by a gentleman and his wife/partner? with the sole intention of breeding gipsy ponies 

Within a year the gentleman had left the site with another woman. Who now owns it ?

There has been no ponies on this site for the last 2/3 years . The only things horse like are four stone horse heads mounted on a structure outside the fencing which I assume is common land. If you need to have a permanent for travellers why not use the old bus station that has been left abandon since I moved here 35 years ago.

Do you consider it necessary to participate at the Examination in Public? No
