We would like to reassure residents that we have taken measures to add additional security to the playing fields/open spaces that we own to ensure that the travellers do not return.
Huge thank to Serco for assisting us to litter pick King George V Playing Field. We have instructed a contactor to remove the human waste that has been left.

 

16.12 – 31 Aug 2018 Update

The Town Council continue to work in conjunction with Bucks County Council, alongside Thames Valley Police to manage the encampment at King George V Playing Field. Yesterday officers from the BCC enforcement team attended the site and initiated removal proceedings. A notice has been served.

Resident’s patience is appreciated whilst this situation is managed, however, our expectation is that the travellers will have moved on within the next three days.
