Caravan site owner will 'fight council to the end' over plans

Last week councillors refused planning permission for Brook House Farm, Crew Green, despite the site running for the last three years and helping local employment.

At a meeting of the Powys County Council planning committee last week part-retrospective plans were refused for five caravan pitches, five camping pods, 10 bell tents and 10 tents together with the building of a toilet block, shop with cafe, use of land for the storage of five caravans and the formation of a new vehicle access.
