Car Boot Sale

The Errol car boot sale has been in existence for many years. It has benefits for some members of the local community, particularly those providing services. For most, the operation is seen as a non-benefit for the local environment, attracting up to 6000 additional car journeys onto local roads each time the sale is held. Most of those cars are from outwith the immediate area, and the fact that the sales are held on a Sunday impinges upon the local amenity. Development of Grange Park, at the modest scale proposed, will retain and improve benefits for service providers, and simultaneously, reduce the level of adverse impact on the local environment.
