Meeting to select a favourite site for travellers  to be held in private tonight.

A meeting of the economy scrutiny panel will be held from 6.30 pm at Grimsby Town Hall. To select a preferred traveller site in Grimsby. Labour leaders are angry that the decision has been made to hold the debate in private with the press and public excluded.

North East Lincolnshire Council have refused to reveal the six sites earmarked as potential designated stopping places.

Councillors will meet next month after they have made a recommendation to cabinet. To make a formal decision on the site chosen. It is believed that it has cost in excess of £80,000 to clear sites and conduct site visits during and after illegal encampments

NELC has promised there will be a full consultation after a site has been selected.
