Marley Head

I visited Marley Head Traveller's site to hear first hand from those who have been living for some time at this site near South Brent. Whilst I am clear that landowners have a right not to have their taken over illegally it is also the case that we need provision for travellers. Many of those living at Marley Head have children in local schools and I hope that South Hams District Council will be able to move forward with plans to find them suitable long term sites once evicted. If landowners agreed and were adequately compensated and if properly developed and screened it seems that Marley Head could provide a base that could help ease the shortage of sites. What do you think?
