TRAVELLERS IN WALES PREFER SHEFFIELD COUNCIL TO GYPSY COUNCIL

A community of travellers in Wales is refusing to move to a new £500,000 site developed by former Llanelli BC unless it is managed by Sheffield City Council.

Families have always resisted the transfer from Morfa, which became the first permanent site in Wales when it was set up 35 years ago but is now part of a regeneration scheme, saying it is the only home they have ever known, reports The Western Mail (p7).

The travellers have told Carmarthenshire CC they are prepared to move only if the new site at Bynea is managed by an agency other than the National Gypsy Council.

Sheffield City Council officials visited the Morfa site and created such a favourable impression that families now want them to take over the new complex, the Mail reports.

Carmarthenshire councillors will decide today whether to inspect the sites run by Sheffield City Council and the NGC.
