Traveller Encampment Vacated


Rochford District Council can now confirm that all three groups of travellers at the unauthorised encampment on Great Wakering Recreation Ground have now left.

A clean-up team are already on site, and provisions to increase the security of the gate access are also to be made today.

The council has been working closely with its partners at the police and the Essex Countywide Traveller Unit during this process, and would like to thank them for their support.
