Waverley Borough Council can confirm that the travellers in Farnham Park have now moved on.

Yesterday, Waverley was granted an Order by Guildford Magistrates to require the removal of vehicles and other property on the land, and, on checking the site this morning, the council can confirm the encampment has gone. A clear up operation will now take place.

On hearing of two more, separate traveller incursions at Dogflud Car Park and Weybourne Recreation Ground yesterday morning, officers visited both sites. They undertook necessary checks and provided toilets and bins to keep the sites as clear as possible. They also issued the encampments with notices, instructing them to leave the land. If they do not comply, the council will pursue further action through the legal process.
