Welfare checks are being carried out by council officers following the arrival of a Traveller’s group at Dane Park in Margate.
Officers say if there are no welfare concerns a notice to quit the site will be served.
The group, consisting of around 12-15 caravans, moved on to the park area yesterday (August 4).
Residents have raised concerns that vans are parked on the games pitch and may cause damage.
A council spokesperson said: “We are aware of travellers at Dane Park and officers from our Community Safety team continue to follow established legal procedure with a planned visit to the group to carry out welfare checks. If no welfare needs are identified, a Section 77 notice will be served.”
It is thought the group is those who were parked at the Marina Esplanade in Ramsgate.
An action plan is being developed by Thanet council to deal with the growing number of unauthorised Traveller encampments in the district.
A working group has been set up to investigate the issue and look at areas including Traveller accommodation, security measures and increased enforcement at high risk areas.
The news was revealed at a full council meeting on July 11 in response to a question from Dane Valley councillor Gary Taylor.
There are currently no authorised pitches in Thanet district. The nearest pitches are in Dover and Canterbury.
