City of Wolverhampton Council has taken the decision to defer the item for the proposed traveller transit site until the next planning committee meeting in the new year.

After receiving a series of detailed representations from the local community, the city council will now take further time to consider the application.

In order to do this, the city council has asked the planning committee to defer the item until the new year.

Tim Johnson, chief executive at City of Wolverhampton Council said: “It’s important we properly consider the application and the representations that have been made before it goes to planning committee. Therefore, the application has been deferred until January.”

The item will now be discussed at the planning committee meeting on Tuesday 14 January, 2020.
