THAT MEMBERS OF THE TRAVELLING COMMUNITY ARE SUBJECT TOO THE SAME PLANNING LAWS AS THE REST OF SOCIETY AND CANNOT PURCHASE LAND THEN WAIT UNTIL A BANK HOLIDAY W/E AND THEN BRING IN HEAVY EQUIPMENT TO LEVEL THE GROUND AND SET UP HOME.

I QUITE AGREE THAT THESE PEOPLE HAVE RIGHTS, BUT THAT DOES NOT GIVE THEM THE RIGHT TOO BE ABOVE THE LAW.

IT WOULD SEEM AT THE MOMMENT THAT THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOUR IS TOTALLY BIASED TOWARDS THE TRAVELLERS, IF AN ORDINARY MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC BREACHES PLANNING REGULATIONS THEY ARE FORCED TO TAKE DOWN OR RESTORE TO ITS ORIGINAL STATE, SO SURELY THIS SHOULD ALSO APPLY TOO TRAVELLERS. 

Why is this idea important?

TO APPLY EQUAL HUMAN RIGHTS TOO ALL MEMBERS OF SOCIETY, WE ALL HAVE BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS, AND AT PRESENT THE MINORITY AS IN THE CASE OF THE TRAVELLING COMMUNITY APPEAR TO BE EITHER ABOVE OR IMMUNE TO PLANNING LAWS/ RESTRICTIONS THAT APPLY TOO THE REST OF SOCIETY.

TO MAKE THIS FAIR THEY SHOULD HAVE TO PUT FORWARD PROPER PLANNING APPLICATIONS TO SET UP A CAMPSITE AND NOT JUST TURN UP AND EXPECT TO APPLY FOR RETROSPECTIVE PERMISSION THAT JUST DRAGS THROUGH THE LEGAL SYSTEM
