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.

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.
