Coseley traveller transit site plans face debate at meeting

By Dayna Farrington | Coseley | News | Published:

Controversial plans for a temporary travellers site in Coseley will be scrutinised at a meeting next month.

People living near the site in Budden Road, Coseley, have expressed their concern at the plans

Dudley Council announced earlier this month that they would press ahead with building the site off Budden Road – almost a year after it was shelved by the previous ruling authority.

The Conservative-run authority confirmed the £300,000 work will start within weeks at the site in Budden Road.

But Labour councillors sitting on the council's place scrutiny committee have called in the decision – over concerns that the site had already been considered and rejected.

The matter will be discussed at a committee meeting at Dudley Council House, in Priory Road, on February 5, from 5pm.

Dudley Council's leader, Patrick Harley, said: "It is important that all decisions are open to proper scrutiny.

"Elected members of all parties will be able to have their say on this important decision.”
