Suggest it could be misleading to produce a glossy brochure depicting Gypsy sites with images of touring caravans on a holiday caravan park - the truth of gypsy sites is generally very different.

Dear Sir,

Having read your published information about proposed gypsy and traveller sites, I must object to the proposed site GT02 (Fosse Way - Warwickshire Exhibition centre.

This site would appear to fail your own criteria in that it is on the site of a viable business that brings money into the area, and would be adversely affected. The site would be clearly visible from surrounding areas, as it lies in a valley, which is of significant historical interest, being a roman road, and which has very dangerous roads (you have numerous warning signs of the dangers of the road)

As such I feel you should cease considering this site, and concentrate on the sites more appropriate.

Sites GT17 and GT18 seem particularly appropriate to travellers

As a comment I do feel it is a tad misleading to produce a glossy brochure on the subject depicting Gypsy sites with images of touring caravans on a holiday caravan park - the truth of gypsy sites is generally very different.

What defines a Gyspy?
Are they required to register on a national database?
Are their earnings checked for taxation?
What checks made on existing property ownership?
Do they reimburse costs to carry out legal eviction and clearing up illegal sites?
