Local News | Travellers Return to Augusta Park | Andover & Villages

Travellers descended on Augusta Park in Andover last night (Sunday 16th October 2017).

The travellers have returned to the field opposite the Augusta Park estate and next to the Saxon Heights development and immediately next to the children’s play park. Over nine caravans are parked up along with pick up vans and transits.

The children from the travellers camp have been sighted playing in the park all day.

Andover Advertising with Andover & VillagesTVBC have¬† tried to stop the travellers camping in the Augusta Park area, with ‘bunding’ and gates being installed, however the travellers continue to return, finding other locations to settle in.

When travellers have camped in the Augusta Park area over recent years, they have left considerable mess behind, including human and animal faeces, residents have also complained of consistent dog barking and aggression from the site.
