When I say down the road I mean less than a minute walk from my house. They've purchased some land and have started tarmacing and put a big fence, gate in. They're obviously going to be either building chalet things or moving the caravans in soon. No planning permission and would never get any due to the location of the land.
I've no doubt that a lot of people in the area will be up in arms about it and doing petitions, etc. But to be honest, I'm not that bothered. Am I being really stupid? I'm not really sure how many caravans they could fit in, maybe 20-30 if they really squished them in. However there's another (bigger) site a couple of miles up the road where there's only about 10 caravans and they don't cause any problems.
My mum reckons I'm mental and that I must get on to the council first thing in the morning and insist that they're stopped......... Am I being too leftie, liberal about the situation?
I would say that the site is just far enough away for me not to worry if any gas cannisters blow up. Plus I reckon people who have lived in caravans all their lives probably know how to connect a gas cannister.
Even I can connect a gas cannister quite safely and I'm a total muppet.
