Three Gypsy plots have been given the go ahead on green belt land in Shalford, despite objections from environmental campaigners.
The land on East Shalford Lane already has a notorious history - Guildford council spent a large sum of money and several years evicting an illegal Traveller site from there in 1989.
Over 20 years later the authority faced the same dilema, but this time with a different outcome.
A mobile home's been on site for 3 years, that's now allowed to stay and two more plots created because the council hasn't met its targets on providing such areas.
It decided this case was different because planning rules have changed and there's an urgent need to give land to Travellers.
