Unlawful Traveller Encampment on Bentley Rd July 2018

4 July 2018, 2.00pm: Travellers arrived on to Bentley Road open space. The Parish Council received a number of complaints and subsequently contacted the local authority Traveller Laision Officer (LCC) and the Police to put in place the necessary measures for them to vacate the area as swiftly as possible.

The local authority Traveller Laision Officer (LCC) attended along with the Police and served notice for the caravans to be off the open space by 7pm on Thursday 5th July 2018.

5 July 2018, 8:00pm: Travellers leave the site on Bentley Rd with minimal fuss and leaving the area in a reasonable condition.

This was a very disturbing and, in some cases, a frightening period for the families and residents in the locality. With this in mind, a multi-agency meeting with the Police and Parish Council took place on Friday 13 July 2018 to give an update on the situation and relay plans to prevent such an incident occurring in the future.

The Parish Council managed to secure a dozen large boulders from Breedon Aggregates Quarry which were delivered to site on Monday 16 July 2018. The Parish Council and residents are most grateful for the offer and generosity of Breedon Aggregates Quarry supplying these boulders so swiftly and free of charge.

The Parish Council will need to look at the final location of the boulders to ensure that unwanted vehicles can't gain access, but the grounds maintenance contractors can!

The Parish Council and residents thank the Traveller Laision officer and specialist Police officer for their swift and efficient action to resolving this situation.

The incident has drawn the residents closer and are looking at building on the new relationship with the Parish Council to create a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme for the area and to bring new and innotiative ideas to enhance the open space for the young users. » Less
