Stop the re-opening of Mettle Hill Traveller Site by South Cambridgeshire District Council

South Cambs District Council has made a surprise announcement of their intention to purchase and then re-open the Mettle Hill Traveller Site, Meldreth, with no consultation whatsoever of anyone in living in Meldreth and in spite of the fact that this would go against their very own policies.
The council has shown a total disregard for the established homes on one English Traveller site and two Travelling Showmen’s sites, which have grown up successfully in direct proximity to the disused site, and which are integrated into Meldreth village.
We the undersigned strongly object to South Cambridgeshire District Council’s intention to reopen the Mettle Hill MeldrethTraveller’s site. Meldreth is proud of its successfully integrated community of settled and travelling people.
Not only has there been no consultation but this intention goes against the District Council's own policies and the spirit of local people making decisions about their own homes and villages.
Re-opening Mettle Hill would be a betrayal of our community.
