01/07/08 – Travellers in Nythe
Cllr Phil Young
As many of you will have noticed, travellers have moved in to the area onto the land adjacent to The Drive & Dorcan Way. Rest assured that we are working to get a satisfactory resolution on this as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately, because of the Human Rights Act brought in by the government, we as a Council do have our hands tied with the powers we have to move them on directly. In my view, this is a skewed system that doesn’t take into account the rights of the pople who pay to live in the area through their mortgages, etc. Rest assured though, that we are all on the case of this one and working hard to ensure that this is resolved as quickly as possible.
I’ll update when I know more.
