AM calls for rethink on Sully travellers’ site

Plans to build at travellers’ site at Hayes Road in Sully are “wholly inappropriate” – South Wales Central AM Andrew RT Davies has said. 


Mr Davies yesterday visited several residents – whose properties back onto the site.


Many concerns were raised – with residents pointing out that the site was earmarked in the Council’s Local Development Plan for 55 residential units.


It is also an area earmarked for economic regeneration and industrial development – something Mr Davies said would be put under threat by the plans.


Mr Davies said, “The proposals for this site are wholly unsuitable – with the Council including it for residential development in the LDP.


“Residents are rightly concerned by the plans for a travellers’ site backing onto their homes – and the impacts this will have on the area.


“It is vital that we think again and come up with an alternative – since these plans are completely unsustainable and must be shelved.”
