We are aware that the Travellers have moved on from the site this morning, however a small number have moved to another business park unit across the road. We are trying to establish who is responsible for this land so that we can notify them and they can commence eviction proceedings. We have also updated the police.

The Council became aware of an incursion of Travellers on Friday 14 December on private land at Bartley Way, Hook.
As the Travellers are on privately owned land, it is a matter for the land owner to arrange for the eviction. The Police are visiting the site regularly and the landowners are taking action to remove them from the land. Any reports of anti-social behaviour by the travellers should be reported to 101.
