The Council has served notice on the travellers who are camped on Brookfield Park, Cheadle. According to the notice, they had to leave the field by 4pm on Saturday (12th August).
We have not had a chance to check whether they’ve gone. If they have not, the Council will apply for a magistrates court hearing and get a court order.
The Lib Dem team have been told that the Police have said that they won’t issue a Section 61 notice to move the travellers off Brookfield Park in Cheadle.
Cllr Iain Roberts said “To me, the fact that they’ve vandalised council property to illegally force entry onto the field should have been sufficient for the Police to act. I understand the pressures the Police are under, and I’ve always worked with them and campaigned for more resources, but on this occasion I believe they’ve made the wrong call.”
We have not received reports of any specific problems caused by the travellers on the site over the last few days.
