Barnsley granted government money – to spend on traveller sites

Government money has been pledged to Barnsley – to develop 10 new traveller sites.

Communities Minister Andrew Stunell announced that £80,000 will be granted to Barnsley, to be spent on new, authorised pitches as well as developing better facilities.

However, the Minister stressed that the support for official traveller pitches coincides with a decision to clampdown on illegal sites.

Councils are to be given extra powers to tackle any illegal pitching problems.
