Lib Dems To Push Ahead With Traveller Site

In yesterday’s Daily Echo, Lib Dem MP Sandra Gidley attempted rather weakly to put some distance between herself and her colleagues on Southampton City Council over the issue of a transit site for Gypsies in Monk’s Brook.

A decision will be taken on Monday (26th) by the council’s Lib Dem Cabinet and all indications are that regardless of the weasel words from the MP, they plan to force it through in the teeth of public opposition. You can read more HERE.

Papers for the Council meeting can be found HERE. It is a public meeting so anyone can attend.

Conservative Councillors remain opposed to putting a transit site in Monk’s Brook.
