More gypsies and travellers will soon be setting up home in a Vale village.

On Thursday night Aylesbury Vale District Council considered the application to extend the current site at Willows Park in Horton Road, Slapton.

The plans include extra access for vehicles, the laying of hardstanding and a new fence.

According to the application, the development would increase the capacity of the site to 13 pitches, which would be used by gypsies and travellers.

Councillors considered implications for the area, including the impact on residents, highway safety and the impact on the surrounding countryside.

But they voted to approve the plans on a tempoary basis. Permission will expire in November 2015.
