News of a large traveller encampment forming at the Park and Ride site- please secure all areas of private land

by Jackie Porter on 4 July, 2017

Today, 4th July 2017, Sgt Stuart Gilmour writes:-

There is currently a huge traveller encampment at South Winchester Park & Ride (M3 Junction 11)
which currently totals more than fifty vehicles with more vehicles having been arriving steadily
for the past forty eight hours.
I do not currently have details about when this group are likely to be moved, however, the size
of the camp is starting to have an impact on the park and ride so I would anticipate imminent
Please be vigilant around any open spaces that you have within your parishes during the next few
days and consider whether there is any opportunity to “target harden” your open spaces.

There is no reliable information or intelligence to indicate where this group are heading next
but the sheer size of the group necessitates a significant sized plot of land if they want to stay
together so recreation grounds and car parks may be attractive potential sites.
