THE proposed gipsy transit site planned for the edge of Cromer has been given delegated approval.

But the application for the 10-space base may still have to go back before North Norfolk District Council's planning committee as it is having to be

re-advertised.

THE proposed gipsy transit site planned for the edge of Cromer has been given delegated approval.

But the application for the 10-space base may still have to go back before North Norfolk District Council's planning committee as it is having to be

re-advertised.

The site is destined to go on land next to the council offices and proposed new police station in Holt Road and is one of two being promoted in north Norfolk to help the authorities deal with seasonal illegal encampments. But many in the town insist it is destined to go in the wrong place. They also argue that any decision should be delayed because of the uncertainly over local government reorganisation and a bid by the East of England Regional Assembly to see 15 permanent pitches being built across the district.

At a meeting of the council development control committee, planning officer Andy Mitchell said the scheme would have to be re-advertised because the 10 hardstanding spaces had been moved 15 metres closer to the road to make it easier for turning farm machinery using nearby land.

Councillors voted to approve the plans, granting delegated approval subject to conditions being met and no new grounds for objection being received when they were re-advertised.
