Travellers move on

Travellers moved out of Merton last night following two encampments this week.

Cannon Hill Common

Cannon Hill Common

We will be looking at how we can make our green spaces more secure for the future, while maintaining them as beautiful open green spaces for our residents to enjoy. When travellers illegally occupied Cannon Hill Common and King George’s Playing Fields most recently, effective partnership working between the council and the police ensured the travellers were moved from the area after all the proper assessments were made. We appreciate that travellers on public green spaces was a concern for many residents and, with the police, we moved to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.
