PLANS to allow extra static caravans to be housed at a traveller site in Potters Bar have been submitted to Hertsmere Borough Council.

Patrick Casey, the owner of Brookes Place, in Barnet Road, has asked for permission to up the number of traveller pitches on his land.

Formerly known as the Pylon Site, Brookes Place can currently take up to 12 static caravans.

If Mr Casey's application is successful, this would increase to 14 static caravans.

Mr Casey has also asked the council to allow gypsies from families other than those already on the site to live there.
