After further discussions with DBC officers this morning, Mr Crow has decided not to proceed with the fair on Haughton Road. All of the equipment will be packed away and the vehicles will leave at the weekend.
I understand that Mr Crow wants to operate a fair in June 2008, and will begin talking to the Council about a suitable site. He wants to honour the 3000 free ride tickets he issued, when he returns.
The 7 Haughton ward councillors made their opposition clear to this fair on this site, and we're delighted with the outcome. Not a single resident told me that they thought this was good place to hold such as event. A big vote of thanks to the Town Hall officers and the Police who worked very hard on this difficult matter.
