20 January 2017
Following a recent unauthorised encampment along Waterside Drive, the Council’s Gypsy/Traveller Liaison Officer is scheduled to visit the site on Monday 23 January, accompanied by the police, to carry out an assessment required under the legal protocol for dealing with unauthorised gypsy/traveller sites.
In addition a separate group of vehicles are residing along the riverside in the layby next to the old Walton Casuals FC site and the Council will be seeking a possession order for this land.
