Unauthorised Gypsy/Traveller site between Llandegla and Bwlchgwyn

The Council has served a planning Enforcement Notice in relation to the above site, and we continue to receive a high volume of queries about the case. In response, we are providing updates about the case here.

The current status of the case is as follows:

An Enforcement Notice has been issued to require the restoration of the site to its prior, authorised state. The period for compliance with the Notice elapsed on the 6th May 2021, but its recipients have not complied with the requirements of the Notice. The Council has therefore carried out a partial clearance of the site. The Council is actively considering what further steps we can take to enforce compliance. We have obtained independent legal advice to ensure that our next steps are compliant with the law.

This status was reviewed on the 29 April 2022 and is reviewed regularly. A further status update will be provided in due course.
