May I suggest that this is starting to wander off topic. If anyone has ideas to help prevent the next visitation, perhaps you should discuss them with the Parish Council, after all, it's them you'll aim your anger at if it happens and they haven't done anything.
Returning to the question of how to deter future traveller trespass I note that ADC have granted planning permission for the building of 15 houses on land in Mayflower Way between the car lot & Mayflower park(ADC planning decisions A/114/04)& recently a further application was submitted to discharge a condition restricting the building to occupation by agricultural workers only(A/117/11/PO) which would obviously have hindered the sale of properties once built. APC Planning Committee considered this at the meeting on 9/8/11 & had no objection. As the developers would clearly have a stake in ensuring travellers did not return to the area during the construction or marketing of the properties I am surprised that ADC & APC were not more astute in prevailing on the developers to assist in securing Mayflower park.
Alternatively a previous suggestion I made was that APC should sell off the field in Mayflower Way which has now become an eyesore & unusable.If there is at last interest in building in Mayflower Way then now is the time to act & hopefully resolve the problem in part at least.
Bram, I think you will find that A/114/04 refers to the houses nearing completion at the southern end of The Walkway and not between the car lot in Mayflower Way and Mayflower Park. A/117/11/PO refers to a restriction imposed when the planning permission was originally granted. This site was the former Lansdowne Nurseries hence the restriction reference to agricultural workers.
Nigel Thank you for the correction & I can only say that on seeing Mayflower Way in the applications I made an incorrect assumption. Since the recent new builds were at the end of Walkway & a fair distance from Mayflower Way I never thought of them being in that location but of course when the greenhouses occupied the land Mayflower Way would have been the only postal address covering that area. However if any developments do arise in Mayflower Way perhaps APC could consider my point.
