Travellers on public land

Council bosses have today reassured people they are doing everything they can to move on groups of travellers who have illegally gained access to public land.

Councillor Les Jones, cabinet member for housing, said:  

“We have been dealing with a number of traveller incursions in the borough. They have now all left and we are currently clearing individual sites.

“We have a range of legal powers and common law powers as landowners and we will use our common law powers where appropriate to deal with incursions as quickly as we can.

“We will continue to work with police colleagues to deal with this issue in a comprehensive manner.
