Weymouth Park and Ride Earmarked for Temporary Traveller Camp

Travellers Dorchester

6:12pm 1st October 2013

The Weymouth Park and Ride site and an area of Piddlehinton could be transformed into temporary traveller sites.

A council committee backed proposals for the camps at a meeting today (Tuesday 1st October).

Dorset County Council will commence talks with the Police and local authorities about plans for the camps.

It comes after a number of illegal traveller sites sprung up around the south of the county the past summer.

The recommendation will now go before the council's cabinet before any planning application is made.
