Plymouth City Council request assistance in removal of travellers from popular city park

Able Investigations’ team of enforcement officers recently assisted with the removal of a group of travellers who settled in a family park in Plymouth.

Joining forces with local police and council staff, our team of bailiffs were instructed to enforce a possession order and remove a group of caravans who set up camp in Trefusis Park in Lower Compton, Plymouth.

The travellers arrived at the park on the afternoon of Sunday 14th August, with more caravans arriving later that day. After reports from neighbour admitting issues with noise and concerns over the safety of caged and tethered animals, a PSCO visited the site.

Plymouth City Council quickly responded to reports of the encampment, telling the group to vacate the park by 1pm on Wednesday the 16th August.

The park, known locally as Tippy Park, is popular with Plymouth families and contains a children’s playground and picnic benches. It’s close proximity to the city centre makes it a target for settlements, with the last traveller encampment being moved on from the park two months prior to the most recent group.

After the travellers were moved on from the site, council worker then had the unpleasant job of clearing up the mess and litter that was left behind, which included bikes, tree stumps, garden rubble, and general rubbish.

You can read about the eviction, and watch footage from the day, on the Plymouth Herald’s website.
