Plans for gypsy traveller retirement village to 'break down barriers'

Plans for gypsy traveller retirement village to 'break down barriers' | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
A specially-designed retirement village for gypsy travellers could help "break down barriers", according to the man behind the plan.

Jack Hendry, a successful businessman with travelling roots, wants to build a gated community in West Lothian offering a chance to enjoy old age away from "prejudice and discrimination".

The planning application for the site at Humbie, near Kirknewton, is for 26 homes and a community centre for social, sporting and cultural events.

The village would house travellers, as well as those from the non-travelling ageing population.

Mr Hendry told BBC Scotland: "It is time for change. I want all walks of life to mix."
