Villa owner loses bid to oust Gypsies.
THE owner of a listed home in Flintshire has suffered defeat in his fight to overturn planning permission for a nearby gypsy encampment.
Gypsy families have been living at Dollar Park in Bagillt Road in Holywell since 2007, despite the objections of Anthony Jayes, owner of nearby villa Glyn Abbot.
Gypsies living in Dollar Park had a five-year planning permission to stay there, but that expired in February 2016.
On April 7 last year, Flintshire council granted a fresh permission for them to stay for another five years. Mr Jayes succeeded in a High Court challenge to the decision last year and the planning permission was overturned.
But now the Court of Appeal has reversed that ruling, saying the county council's decision was "realistic and lawful".
