Westrum Lane - Good planning not bad politics

Following the article on 15th October you ask “Is Brigg Town Council right to back the plans?”

The article does not, of course, indicate how the new pitches would relate to what is already permitted on the site or to its surrounds. Moreover, the picture shown bears no relation to what is on the ground. What you will now see is very impressive indeed.

Independent agencies concerned with gypsy and traveller matters have in the past expressed great confidence in the Town Council’s ability to grasp the bigger picture. So far as the detail is concerned, I know that Ben Nobbs and others are most diligent in their research.

In short, Brigg Town Council have put good planning ahead of bad politics.
