Travellers on Augusta Park

Travellers descended on Augusta Park in Andover last night (Wednesday 28th June 2017).

The travellers are camped on the field opposite the Augusta Park estate and next to the Saxon Heights development and immediately next to the children’s play park.

TVBC have desperately been trying 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 a considerable mess behind, including human and animal faeces, residents have also complained of consistent dog barking and aggression from the site.

Local police have already visited the site after the traveller’s presence was reported.
