Worries over site’s growing travellers camp - owner

Have your say

A travellers camp adjacent to Sheffield Ski Village could prove a spanner in the works for future developments, the site’s current owner has suggested.

In a letter to Sheffield Council, owner Kevin Pullan said: “If allowed to remain, the expanding camp proves the need for additional camps in Sheffield, and it is only a short step to assume that what was an illegal camp at Parkwood Springs will become a permanent facility.”

A council spokesman said: “We have set up a project group to look at how we can regenerate the area. Those plans involve discussions about the travellers and we will be assessing all the options available to us.”
