CONCERNS have been raised by businesses over travellers causing problems on a trading estate near Bromyard.

Conservative ward councillor Nigel Shaw told Brockhampton Group Parish Council he had raised these concerns with the county council and West Mercia Police.

Draft minutes of January's meeting said Coun Shaw had "expressed concern" to the licensing and travellers support manager, and the police, about more antisocial and criminal activity at Linton Trading Estate, on the A44 between Bromyard and Bringsty.


He said he had met with businesses who work from the units at the site, which is also home to Bromyard tip.

He said the illegal behaviour had been "affecting occupants", but two people had been jailed for fly-tipping and a third ordered to carry out community work.
