Basildon Council has approved a new travellers' camp just 16 months after completing a multi-million pound eviction from the notorious Dale Farm site.
The new camp is less than half a mile away from the farm that was cleared after a very public fight by local residents.
Cllr Tony Ball, the Leader of Basildon Council, told ITV News that each planning application was considered on its individual merits.
Rags Martel has the details.
