No decision yet on Star travellers site

Councillors have postponed a decision on whether to give the go ahead for a stopping site for Gypsies and travellers near Gaerwen.

Anglesey Council planners have recommended proposals for the site on a narrow patch of agricultural land beside the A55 at Star, holding up to ten pitches.

But the plans have been strongly opposed by local residents. Over 1500 people have signed a petition by the local community council – they have described the land as ”unsuitable, wet and dangerous”.

At a meeting on Wednesday, Plaid councillor for Aethwy, Robin Wyn Williams, called on the planning committee to delay a decision until a visit to the proposed site took place.

The committee voted in favour of a visit, but the move was criticised by Bro Aberffraw councillor Bryan Owen (Anglesey Independents) as a ”waste of time” because everyone knew the location.

Wednesday marked the last council meeting in the Llangefni chamber before the summer recess.
