A group of Travellers who set up at Jackey Bakers fields in Ramsgate on Thursday (July 5) have now left the site.
It appears the group had recently been removed from land in Herne Bay before arriving in Ramsgate.
The playing fields now need a second clear up operation in as many months following the departure.
Jackey Bakers has been used by Travellers twice previously in June and once in May and by two separate groups last June. There was also a large encampment at the site in July 2016.
Last week residents signed a petition asking for a barrier/bund or secure fencing for the entire perimeter of Jackey Bakers to head of Traveller incursions and nuisance bikers who are getting on to the green at night.. A similar request has been made by people living in Dane Valley where the Green has also been the target of numerous incursions.
There have been 27 unauthorised encampments in Thanet so far this year.
A Thanet council spokesman said: “We take the concerns of local residents very seriously and the issues around access at Jackey Bakers are something we are working hard to resolve. We are exploring a range of measures to limit nuisance use of the area.
“We have spoken with individual residents and will use our website and social media channels to keep the public in the loop as decisions are made and solutions found.”
Neighbouring council seeks civil injunction
Canterbury City Council land has also been targeted with incursions. The authority is now seeking to obtain a civil injunction to try and prevent unauthorised encampments on any of its land, using existing legislation.
A spokesman said: “The frequency with which this is happening means we need to seek other, long-term solutions to the problem. As a result, we have now begun the process of obtaining a civil injunction to try and prevent unauthorised encampments on any of our land, using existing legislation. A small number of councils have already gone down this route so precedent has been set.
“This is not a quick process but we are now collating evidence with a view to making an injunction application.”
