We are pleased to report that the travellers that had illegally occupied Broomfield Community Park have left the site.
A big thank you to City Councillor, Robert Jones and the City Council for working with our parish council and very quickly issuing a removal order for the travellers. This was served yesterday after many visits to the encampment for welfare checks etc. The City Council arranged for SERCO to clear up this morning. Our parish clerk, Monica also went up there to littler pick and put a padlock back on the gate.
It seems some of the travellers have now moved onto Chestfield Medical Centre car park.
Unfortunately there will be a cost to the parish council and City Council, which means council tax payers.
