Time is running out to comment on a recent planning application regarding the Seamer Horse Fair site.

An application has been made to Scarborough Council for the removal of condition 2 to allow for continuing use of the site on an annual basis.

The site is located on the north side of the B1261 in Seamer.

Scarborough’s mayor and ward councillor Helen Mallory has already submitted a comment, which states: “I wish to formally oppose the permanent granting of planning permission for the travellers’ site.

“I would ask that the permission is again restricted to either one or two years.

“This is to give a degree of comfort and assurance to the residents that the Police, NYCC and SBC will maintain a strict control of the event and will continue to reduce the duration of the travellers’ fair.”

The closing date for any representations regarding this application is December 24.

Any representations should be made to Case Officer, Mr N Read, Planning Services, Town Hall, St Nicholas Street, Scarborough YO11 2HG. Alternatively please email nick.read@scarborough.gov.uk
