Yesterday I received a number of calls regarding the appearance of travellers opposite the temporary community centre. Having called the Police and informed the relevent people, all we can really do is wait to see what happens.
I know the police are regularly patrolling the area and when this has happened previously, it has not taken long to evict them. It seems that this group has come down from St Oswalds, from which they were evicted. While I have no issues with the Travelling community, what I don’t like is the way that public and private space is abused and particularly when it is left in a terrible state, as we have seen on the likes of Plock Court.
If you have any concerns please do get in touch, either with myself, or the Police on 101.
I will also be asking question of the County Council to determine the strategy for dealing with this issue which seems to be getting worse rather than better. Considering there is a site just on Naas lane that is not used, and other such locations, why do we have to end up in this situation?
