Poole temporary traveller sites plans to go ahead

Councillors have voted in favour of setting up two temporary travellers' sites in Dorset.

An emergency meeting of Poole Borough Council on Monday evening saw Oakdale and Creekmoor chosen from a shortlist of 90 despite objections from residents and businesses.

Separate planning applications are set to be submitted in the next two weeks and the sites could open by the summer.
