Judge Richard Seymour QC continued a court order first made by Mr Justice Lloyd Jones 13 April which banned John and Louie Lee from moving caravans on to the five hectare site. The ban will now remain in place until any further court order or a full court hearing.
He continued: 'It needs planning permission and has not got it. It is fear of a substantial gypsy site on this location which is the concern of the council.'
And he said that police were also concerned.
'They are clearly concerned about this land and the use to which it might be put,' he said.
He told the judge that a letter had been received from a 'gypsy liaison officer' which referred to 'a small private gypsy site for a family' being put on the site, but he said the site covered five hectares and this was more than would be needed for such a site.
He said that no application had been made for any development on the site though added that if the Lees wished they could apply for consent and any such application would be considered by the council on its merits.
Continuing the ban the judge said: 'I am satisfied it is appropriate that the order of Mr Justice Lloyd Jones be continued until a final hearing in the case or further order.'
He was told that copies of his order will be posted on the site as a warning to the gypsies that they must not move on to it.
The order stipulates that they must not carry out any development work on the site, must not cause or permit caravans to go on to it and must not use it as a caravan site.
