Picnic area at Dersingham isn’t set to become travellers’ site
A picnic area on the edge of the Queen's Sandringham estate will not be turned into a travellers' site, Norfolk County Council said today.
The lay-by, near the George Pratt Roundabout, has been home to a burger van and picnic tables for more than a decade.
Now the van has gone and the gate giving access to the area off the main A149 coast road remains closed.
There are rumours circulating that the Norfolk County Council-owned site could become a travellers' site.
But today a council spokesman said: 'The lease on the current burger van has been terminated at their request.
You may also want to watch:
'We have also heard all sorts of rumours about the future use of the site, and there has been interest from other van operators for the licence.
'However, the council wants to take this opportunity to consider whether it wants to retain this site. We have no intention of making it a gypsy transit site.'
