More travellers in King's Park

Most of you I’m sure will be aware that travellers arrived in the park again over the weekend. Parks officers were warning earlier this morning that they believed it could take up to three weeks to dislodge them.

I’m pleased to say that having spoken to the legal department of the council and the parks officers themselves we have established that the eviction notice that was put in place when travellers arrived at the end of last month does, as I thought, stay in effect for three months.

Parks Officers and the Police are therefore visiting the travellers this afternoon to inform them that there is a Court Order in place and that Bailiffs are being called to remove them in the next couple of days. We are therefore hopeful that they should be gone well before the weekend.
