Travellers on Perry Park

Cllr Ray Hassall checking out the site of anti-traveller fencing
We've been informed that 'travellers' got onto the front of Perry Park again today.

Somebody seems to have removed some of the older metal fencing off Church Road.

This has happened just as the new anti-traveller barriers are fitted across the front of the park. This is being fitted after we secured investment for our parks - and responds to the invasion last year onto the last unenclosed area of park.

The police responded with a rapid visit and the visitors have now moved on.

Something similar happened elsewhere in the city when they started putting up the anti-traveller fencing. Our parks are used for many things - but they are not camping sites!
