New temporary travellers' site in Coseley plans submitted
A planning application has been submitted for a new controversial temporary traveller's site in Coseley.
The site has been earmarked for disused council-owned land off Budden Road.
Dudley Council agreed plans to build one earlier this year in a bid reduce illegal camps in the borough.
The local authority spends around £150,000 a year on clean-up and eviction costs.
The plans need to be passed by planning bosses before work can start.
Under the plans, a new driveway will be built alongside an amenity building and fencing.
Some residents have opposed the move.
Coseley East ward councillor Susan Ridney said: "Myself and councillor Mottram will be objecting the plans and I imagine quite a few residents will.
"The land is contaminated. There was a lot of industrial waste and domestic waste put in there."
