Travellers at Gala Fields

Published on Friday, 28th September 2018

The Borough Council is taking steps to remove the group of travellers currently occupying Gala Fields.

The Council had previously agreed to tolerate the encampment on certain conditions for a short period of time, whilst essential welfare assessments were undertaken. 
The conditions attached to the agreement were imposed in order to minimise the impact of the encampment on local people; however, some of these conditions have not been observed by the travellers and the Council is now taking action to remove the encampment at the earliest opportunity. Notice has been served this afternoon and, following discussions with the police, they have been requested to take urgent action to direct the travellers from the Borough.
