Would councillor want a site on his doorstep?

READING the item in the Observer (March 1) that confirms the gypsy and traveller site off of Queensway has finally been given the green light in spite of objections from nearby residents, makes one wonder where the council gets its ideas from.

These sites are controversial at the best of times and as many people say they have to go somewhere, but I wonder just how far this site would have been accepted if Cllr Peter Pragnell or Cllr Peter Finch had homes just 12 metres from the proposed site as in the case Mr and Mrs Knight.

Not a chance.
