Squatters Hovels

Reported via desktop in the Park safety issue category anonymously at 11:38, Friday 12 March 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2603709.

A section of Green Park has been taken over by an illegal squatters shanty town. Not only is it an illegal encampment but dangerous to locals and passing residents, increase in vermin and a health hazard. It has been there for several weeks now and I have had to re-direct my journey when out with my young daughter so that we do not go near that area, we would regularly walk/run/ride through Green Park but now we go via Midland Bridge Rd.

  • That was there before the pandemic and now even bigger, it's a fire risk too. Watched them have a fist fight on the path the other day, no wonder people don't feel safe.
