Travellers asked to move caravan further away from resident's back garden

First published in News

FOLLOWING complaints from residents, travellers at Fleetsbridge, Poole, have been asked to move a caravan further away from a back garden.

Resident Paula Holloway of Christopher Crescent had complained that one van, on land next to Staples car park, was parked right up against an elderly neighbour’s garden.

Peter Haikin, Borough of Poole regulatory services manager said: “Officers have made further visits to this unauthorised encampment and are satisfied that the site is being kept clean and tidy, and that the group are making use of the temporary toilets provided.”

To date, Borough of Poole has not instigated court action to have the two encampments removed.

Mr Haikin explained: “To apply for any eviction order we are required by law to collect a variety of information, including sufficient evidence to demonstrate that unauthorised encampment is having an adverse affect on the local community.

“We have initiated these enquiries and we will continue to monitor the site closely and respond to any changes that would indicate that legal proceedings need to be started.

“The travellers have been asked to move the motor caravan away from the rear fences of the neighbouring homes.”

He said they were also aware that four caravans were on a car park at Baiter.

“Officers have visited the site which is clean and tidy, and bags have been provided for rubbish.

The site will continue to be monitored by us as part of the legal process required for the removal of the travellers,” he added.

Earlier this year councillors agreed to offer travellers the use of temporary toilets and skips, to help address environmental concerns.

I am sure we are all delighted that our public servants are sitting on their hands 'monitoring' this illegal encampment whilst considering an application for an eviction order at a far more convenient time and handing out free rubbish bags - we would hate to put them to any trouble........ and do have a nice weekend off.

I really fear people are going to take the law into their own hands soon - and who could really blame them?

oh no, you can't do that as the council will come round and check that you are a bona fida traveller.

what these checks constitute is a mystey .. something the council will not reveal nor will the Daily Echo ask them

so, in that light I WOULD STRONGLY URGE all; locals to contact their three ward councillors and ask them

what checks are made to determine whether these folk are genuine travellers or not ?

let's start putting the council and the police on the spot - we pay them

You make a valid point and yet the government never listen as usual. Our laws and the human rights are restricting common sense. It's unfair to blame the police as they are powerless to remove them due to the restrictions by law. On private land, an eviction notice has to be sought by the land owner, and I'm assuming the courts need evidence of certain criteria our government have set which no doubt is in favour of the minority and not the tax payers. Handing them free skips and bin liners is a joke though. I'm sure there's far more needy people who struggle to make ends meet that would be more appreciative of free bin liners.

"I say, would you mind awfully just moving your caravan away from ones fence? Thank you so much".
How about "you're on private land, shift it"? Perhaps we should all just forget about parking or trespassing regulations and park up where we dram well please.
And now they're given toilets and rubbish removal services???? I'm very confused. If I drop a crisp packerpt accidentally within sight of an official, I'll get fined. If I buy a caravan I can do whatever I like? Brilliant!
Would you rather they leave faeces and rubbish everywhere? Clearly you would rather they weren't there at all, but as they are, surely it is better to make sure the area is left in a decent state and not like we have seen in the past.
That happens anyway.... sadly.

As someone who uses whitecliff park and poole park to walk my dog I was disgusted by the travellers this morning as they have moved on to the park, are running a generator, using water from poole park, and have left rubbish all over the place. It's sick that in this society it's legally acceptable for so called travellers to be able to pitch up where they like when they like and the Laissez-faire council we have think it's ok to just leave them be. Maybe we should all just go out and dig foundations for houses in whitecliff park - alas the council will stop that. They won't stop some travellers who ruin our parks. I've no solution for the travellers apart from they need to move on and remove their waste so the people of poole who pay council tax can enjoy what we pay for.

Are you part of the new breed of grammar nasties?
Perhaps the leader of the local branch of spellcheckers?
Have you nothing better to do?
Excuse me, if you can read I was correcting my own comment.
Please accept my apologies as I misread the post. Sorry.

People of Poole SHOULD NOT have to PAY PARKING FEES until these "travellers" have gone and perhaps never have to pay parking again?

REASONING: We are ALL "Travellers" if we drive, cycle, or use public transport all forms of "travel" but apparently if you are a “Traveller” you no longer need to pay to park your vehicles.

BENEFITS: Council save wages for Parking Officers, these savings can be used towards the clean up after the “Travellers” go off on their "travels"

TO ALL YOU Caravan, Motor-home, Tent owners, don’t book expensive sites to pitch up, “travel” down to the local Baiters Car Park or nearby field, with beautiful sea views, toilet facilities etc. all for FREE!! Just make sure when asked you say, "I am a traveller passing through on my travels"

"Traveller" is an old term which used to be applied to what we now know as Sales People, Representatives or BDM's etc, all paying Tax, (Council, Road and Personal), we all make NI contributions, we also pay for the up-keep of these places for our use and indeed, the enjoyment for other people that contribute in the same way, why should we pay for “freeloaders” to enjoy these things?

Do "Travellers" make any contribution towards, Tax, Council Tax, NI Contributions, Site/Parking Fees? They have "rights"? "rights" should be earned and if given, they can also be removed, I pay a fortune for mine!

I have no problem with the true "Romany Gypsies" but the term "Traveller" should not be applied to them.
