Traveller incursion at Butterfield Playing Fields, Old School Drive 22 June 2022
Thank you to everyone for helping to bring the unauthorised traveller incursion to an end within 24 hours.
To the local residents for their vigilance in reporting enabling a quick response. To the Police, HCC, SADC officers, Carter Jonas, Bailiffs, Bryan Lecoche Ltd and Cllr Annie Brewster. Various processes have to be undertaken and the negotiations at times tricky. Thank you to those who helped reassure our community, residents and businesses alike, and for ensuring our visitor knew they were not welcome and should not revisit.
HCC have arranged for an environmental clean, their contractor has already visited the site to assess.
The site has been resecured and we will look at how best to achieve a lasting solution
