Travellers have returned to Augusta Park this weekend (May 2018).
In recent months, the new housing estate has seen the travellers return frequently and it appears they are in residence with more and more regularity.
TVBC have desperately been trying to stop the travellers camping in the Augusta Park area, with 'bunding' and gates being installed, however the travellers continue to return, finding other locations to settle in.
When travellers have camped in the Augusta Park area over recent years, they have left considerable mess behind, including human and animal faeces, residents have also complained of consistent dog barking and aggression from the site.
