SELL­ING OFF LAND WILL LEAD TO FU­TURE IS­SUES

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

HEATHER POMROY Chal­font St Peter

I was con­cerned to read that Bucks County Coun­cil are to sell off land resided on by trav­eller groups.

This will surely lead to se­ri­ous prob­lems in the fu­ture.

The land is owned by the public and its use man­aged by the county coun­cil. This is at it should be and helps to prevent il­le­gal squat­ting which causes hard­ships and dis­tress for all.

The land could be sold on to un­scrupu­lous landown­ers who may flout land-use re­stric­tions and in­fringe on the rights of neigh­bour­ing landown­ers and the public alike.

The land is our land and its use pro­tects both the trav­el­ling com­mu­nity and the gen­eral public. I would ask the county coun­cil to think again.

This is short term gain for long term pain.
