Cockett and Llansamlet preferred for new official traveller sites
TWO sites have finally been identified in Swansea as a potential home for travellers.
Swansea Council has been engaged in a long-running process to find a site for travellers to stay, and the Evening Post understands the authority’s two ‘preferred sites’ are in Cockett and Llansamlet.
A report has been delivered to councillors outlining the conclusions of the lengthy process to identify a suitable site, which had considered five short listed locations.
An announcement on its findings is due to be made tomorrow, and it is expected to reveal the preferred sites are the former greyhound racing track in Cockett, and Peniel Green Road in Llansamlet.
The two sites had been included on a short-list which also featured two in Gorseinon, and one in Penderry ward.
A Swansea council spokesman said: “The latest report concerning the council's efforts to identify a second gyspy and traveller site in Swansea will be published on Thursday.”
The Evening Post takes an in-depth look at the latest development in the city’s gypsy site row in tomorrow’s edition.
