Planning laws need changing


After Dale Farm the government should bring in new laws on the setting up and living on illegal travellers’ sites.

Councils and courts all over Britain having to spend a fortune and time on people who will immediately re-offend on planning laws at every stop is a national issue.

Consistently breaking these laws must become a criminal offence punishable by prison.

Confiscation of vehicles to stop them should also be an option if used to commit said crimes.

Local MPs take note.
