RESIDENTS are invited to a drop-in session to learn more about the plan for a permanent residential gypsy and traveller site in St Asaph.

Denbighshire County Council are hosting the information event.

The proposal is to create a permanent residential gypsy and traveller site with a maximum of six pitches at the Green-gates East site on Cwttir Lane.

The Council has been undertaking activities in recent months to progress the proposed permanent residential Gypsy and Traveller site to the planning application stage. In March, letters went out to residents in Cwttir Lane stating that land - required for the proposed development - was going to be fenced off.

A spokesperson for the local authority said: "The Council expects a planning application to be ready later in the year.

"Once the planning application is submitted there will be an opportunity for interested parties to submit any representations on material planning considerations through the statutory planning consultation process."

Earlier this year, Cabinet resolved they would not progress with proposal for a transit Gypsy and Traveller site in this location.

The drop-in event for residents and other interested parties will take place at St Asaph Library on Thursday, July 4 between 5pm and 6.30pm. Representatives of the Council will be available to answer questions.

The Council will also be providing an update to companies at St Asaph Business Park on July 1.

This event is not open to the public and is via invite only.
