Thanet council has been informed of a Travellers group moving on to Dane Valley Green once again.
The group, thought to have been among those moved on from the Chine at Ramsgate’s Westcliff and then the East Cliff yesterday (April 3) moved on to the site today.
Caravans were turned away from the council-owned car park at Dreamland this morning.
Work to clear the Dane Valley site after the last encampment was carried out last month,taking place not long after the authority had finished clearing up from a Summer encampment.
Dane Valley residents are currently petitioning to have a fence installed around the green. Last year residents living by Jackey Bakers fields in Ramsgate also raised a petition to ask for better preventative measures to avoid unauthorised sites on the space.
Thanet council responded with the £15,000 installation of a two metre high fence, bollards that restrict access for vehicles to the public right of way, new gates and CCTV.
Ward councillor Gary Hillman said: “Once again the residents of Dane Valley are subjected to further intrusion on public land and the instant crime wave that comes with it. It’s time for Tory central government to get its act together and change the law and give councils the tools to do their job.
“At the same time TDC need to act on Dane Valley councillors request for a enforced mound to be built now.”
The Friends, Families and Travellers charity say local authorities need to provide adequate land for travellers to stop as many families are forced to pull up in public spaces and on private land. This leaves many with interrupted access to basic water and sanitation, education and healthcare.
Thanet currently does not have an authorised site with the nearest being in Aylesham and Dover.
An FFT spokesman previously told The Isle of Thanet News that sites should be made available, saying: “We would recommend that the district council and local authority work with the Traveller community in the area to identify land that would be suitable for building new sites to accommodate these residents.”
