Yesterday (30th August) CWaC officers issued a decision notice refusing a “site” application, saying the gypo pitches would be ‘harmful’ to the green belt and the ‘very special circumstances’ did not outweigh the potential harm to the land.

Shadow Health Minister Angela Davis said it was “devastating” that the government had failed to adequately plan ahead and that it will hit the “poorest in society”. Holland & Barrett have rubbished the claims, which a spokesperson dismissed as “nonsense” – although their shares dived by over 142% in early morning trading.
