A PLANNING meeting will be held in Shenstone to discuss proposals to build a site for travelling show people in Heath Lane.

The meeting, which is open to the public, will be held on Tuesday at 7pm at the Stone Manor Hotel by Stone Parish Council.

The proposed site, next to Madinatul Uloom Al Islamiya School, would have eight residential caravans, 10 touring caravans and one static caravan, as well as storage for equipment and vehicles.

The planning permission is being applied for by Neil Jennings, whose family has a long history as travelling show people, providing fair ground rides and stalls at events throughout the district.

More than 100 people attended a meeting last month at the Granary Hotel, in Heath Lane, to discuss the plans.
