Traveller encampment at Bannisters Field

Published at 12:38pm 22nd June 2018.

Guildford Borough Council is aware of the traveller encampment on Bannisters Field, near the Royal Surrey County Hospital, and is in the process of doing all it can, as quickly as possible.

The travellers, who were previously at Stoke Park, arrived last night (13 June), will be served with a notice directing them to leave as soon as possible.

The Council is working with the police who are also aware of the current situation. If the caravans and accompanying vehicles have not left site in accordance with the direction to leave, we will take further action through the legal process.

Guildford Borough Council is monitoring the situation and has provided the occupants with bin bags, and made arrangements to remove any rubbish.

If you have any questions about encampments, or to report rubbish, please contact Customer Services on 01483 505050 or email customerservices@guildford.gov.uk

If you are reporting anti-social behaviour or criminal activity, please contact Surrey Police on their non-emergency number 101 or 999 in an emergency only.

For further information about how we deal with traveller encampments, please go to the Council's Unauthorised encampments page.
