Pembrokeshire County Council - Please Don't Evict the Russells From Causeway Garage!

This petition had 1,714 supporters

The Russells, Ian and Caroline, along with their children have lived and worked at Causeway Garage near Camrose for over 15 years. This small, family run business is well supported by locals who appreciate immensely all the hard work and dedication that the couple give. In a nutshell, they provide an excellent service reminiscent of the good old days when the reputation of a family business was everything.

Despite being situated in a rural area, the garage (having existed for many decades) has within less than a mile: a slaughter house, a timber yard and a concrete and stoneware manufacturer. The garage is next to two 1960's (or thereabouts) properties of no historical importance and a large new build which is being erected immediately next door. Despite this, the Russells have been repeatedly refused permission to build their own home and have lived on site in a caravan ..... which they now are being forced to leave. 

Pembrokeshire County Council have stated that there is no need for them to live on site. We, as longstanding customers, completely and utterly disagree. The security of vehicles left overnight at the garage is paramount. The Council says a large security fence would suffice. This would be ugly and intrusive. Why not simply allow Ian and Caroline to build their home next to their established place of work and ensure the safety of vehicles and expensive garage equipment? It would be a crying shame to lose this wonderful little garage - a rural business, in a rural area serving local people. We urge PCC to reconsider their decision.
