Planning application CB/16/04420/FULL is for "change of use for the retention of caravans for occupation by four Romani Gypsy families, with associated hardstanding and access. The site to contain, four static caravans, four touring caravans and associated residential parking." The consultation period for this application closes on 02 November 2016.
As might be inferred from use of the word "retention", this application is partly intended to secure
formal permission for some elements already in place in excess of existing planning permission(s).
For the sake of clarity, this application should not be confused with the separate application to create more pitches and extend the Eversholt Beeches site further into the green belt and area of outstanding natural beauty; that application will be determined on its own merits.
The Eversholt Beeches site should also not be confused with the two separate existing sites at Jockey Farm or the extensive traveller site at Greenvale; all four of these traveller sites along the Caddington stretch of the A5 are independent of each other.
Anybody who wishes to comment on this application, whether they support or oppose it, has until 02 November to submit their comments to Central Bedfordshire planning department.
