Waverley Borough Council can confirm that all six unauthorised traveller camps that came to the borough during the last two weeks have been removed.

Yesterday evening (Tuesday 25 July) the council evicted the travellers from Wrecclesham Recreation Ground with the support of the Police and Bailiffs. A clean up operation began at Wrecclesham this morning (Wednesday 26 July), with the majority of mess now removed from all six sites.

The costs associated with the incursions are significant; they will be published on our website in due course.

It is an offence for any of the removed travellers, where a direction was given, to return to these sites within three months. If any residents are aware of any of the travellers returning to these sites they should call the council and Surrey Police immediately.
