SIX dedicated sites for gipsy and traveller communities could be built in Cheshire.
Cheshire West Council has come up with the plan to make sure it has the recommended quota of sites.
Officials hope that will mean the council’s rejection of unauthorised sites will no longer be overturned on appeal.
The proposed locations are in Rossfield Road, Ellesmere Port; Buildwas Road, Neston; Bumpers Lane, Chester; Oakwood Farm, Saughall; and two in Winsford.
They were shortlisted after consultant Ekosgen surveyed more than 1,300 potential sites across the borough.
Five would be residential facilities and one transit.
Sites would be managed by a registered provider and tenants would pay council tax and other bills.
Cllr Herbert Manley, executive member for regeneration, said: “These would be well-managed sites with little negative impact on their surroundings.
“They will be run with the aid of management groups, including representatives from the travelling community, police, businesses and council.”
