Travellers' site set to open opposite new Market Drayton housing estate after plans approved

A permanent travellers' site is to open next to the A53 – across the road from a 209-home estate where houses are selling for £370,500.

The site – in Market Drayton – will have five pitches, each with two caravans, one static caravan and one mobile home.

A similar planning application was withdrawn in 2020 due to highways concerns. But the application later returned and has now been approved without going before a planning committee.

Now a sign has gone up advertising the caravan site.
