Chichester District Council "aware of the travellers on New Park Road"

Chichester District Council told V2 Radio: " ‘We are aware of the travellers on New Park Road and we are working with our partners at West Sussex County Council and Sussex Police to resolve this as quickly as possible."

Just this week, the council announced they are working with local communities to look at what further options it can take to deter unauthorised encampments on council owned land.

This action follows a number of recent unauthorised encampments on council parks and land, which have caused distress to those living nearby and created excessive littering.

A spokesperson for Chichester District Council said: ‘We are aware of the travellers on New Park Road and we are working with our partners at West Sussex County Council and Sussex Police to resolve this as quickly as possible.

"Our council officers will be regularly visiting the area to liaise with those on site and to ensure that the area is kept tidy.

"We are currently looking at additional security measures that we can introduce to make the community spaces that we manage more secure and to help deter unauthorised encampments.

"We are meeting with residents and partners in the recently affected areas to gather their views on a series of options.

"It is proposed that the programme will initially prioritise measures in the open spaces at New Park and East Broyle in Chichester, and then the council will review its other sites on an ongoing basis.’
