Council bosses were meeting with residents today to discuss proposals for a temporary travellers’ site in Coseley.

The site would be established in a bid to curb the number of illegal encampments being set up

Dudley Council’s cabinet have organised the trip to discuss the controversial plans, which are currently under review.

Plans for the site, on Budden Road, was given the green light under the last council which was run by the Conservatives.

But since since Labour took power, they have put the plans on hold to carry out their own assessments.

The community in Coseley have objected strongly to the site.

Councillors, including council leader Qadar Zada, will meet on Budden Road at 4.30pm.

They also want to hear about other concerns affecting residents.
