AFTER more than two months the work reviewing the public's feelings towards controversial gypsy and traveller sites has been completed.

Denbighshire County Council's planning committee received more than 700 responses and a 4,085 name petition during public consultation - which ended on November 25 - for the proposed sites on the outskirts of St Asaph.

Plans will see to create a permanent residential site for five to six pitches, as well as a transit site for four to five pitches at Green-gates Farm East.

Last October, defiant residents rallied together to put up sings around the city stating ‘Say No’ to the sites.

The following month, a heated public meeting at Glan Clwyd School saw about 600 people line the corridors to object to the proposal.

In a statement to The Journal a council spokesperson said: "DCC wishes to inform residents that the work of reviewing all of the feedback received as part of the consultation into the proposed gypsy and traveller site has now been completed.

"The council has carefully reviewed all of the information received from residents, the wider community and the business sector to ensure that the feedback is captured accurately."

"The cabinet appreciated the depth of feeling and concerns and wanted to give serious consideration to everyone who had taken the trouble of contacting the Council, in response to the consultation."

"The council also wishes to emphasise that no decision has been made."

The council expects to be in a position to report back to cabinet members in the Spring.
