Travellers in Blackpond Lane
We are of course aware that many residents are distressed about issues relating to the travellers who were until recently camping in a private field in Blackpond Lane.
As a Parish Council we have no power to act in this situation. We are however active in trying to pass on information and liaise with those who do have the authority to act. We are liaising with South Bucks District Council about the litter issues and we are talking to the County Councillor about what if anything could be done to prevent them returning to this site.
Following a complaint it seems that one email on the issue from a resident was not received by the Clerk. The Clerk aims to respond to emails within one working day ( the Clerk does not work Fridays) so if you do not get a response to an email you send please try ringing the Clerk and leaving a message.
In response to a request put by us to the police we have received a link to the Thames Valley Police policy on dealing with travellers encampments. This is attached below.
