Traveller encampment blocking access to cafe

Reported via mobile in the Park safety issue category anonymously at 13:02, Thursday 9 September 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2990194.

Since moving onto Bloomfield green yesterday evening the travellers have now blocked access to the Arty Bakes cafe. This cafe has only just been able to reopen after a vandalism incident less than a week after it initially opened.

Please ensure this business, which is a council tenant, is able to continue trading without interruption or harassment.

  • There are more travellers arriving today. We saw another caravan driving up Wellsway at 11:30 heading up to Bloomfield Green. The gate to the Green is wide open and needs to be padlocked to stop further incursion.

    There is a police car at the gate sitting parked so perhaps they can give an update on the status rather than council tax payers.
