Travellers move off carpark to estate

Have your say

Travellers who have been pitched on Bury St Edmunds town centre carparks have now moved to Moreton Hall.

The travellers were moved on from Ram Meadow carpark then went to St Andrews Street North carpark until Saturday when they moved to the forecourt of empty industrial units in Cratfield Road.

A spokeswoman for St Edmundsbury Borough Council said it is up to the land owner to take action if they want them moved on.

She added: “We will make sure they’ve got bin bags and will collect their waste so it is as hygienic as can be.”

Suffolk’s gipsy and traveller liason officer is in contact.
