Home-owners complained of “atrocious” late-night music, fireworks “like gunshots” and human waste at Coldean Woods.
About 40 vehicles are parked at the unauthorised site in woods off Coldean Lane.Human waste? Check! Total disregard for the standards of civilised behaviour? Check! Parking up wherever you feel like knowing the council will do nothing? Check!
But when Ruth White, who lives on Park Road, complained to the council, she was told there is “no demand” for the noise service on a Bank Holiday Sunday evening.What they mean is 'No one wants to pay overtime and we'll do nothing anyway, because we're scared of them'...
A member of the traveller group, who did not give his name, would not comment on the noise complaints. He said: “The council is not fulfilling its moral obligations to site travellers.
“When we have a good working relationship with the councils it allays locals’ fears.”I believe that's how Al Capone operated back in Chicago, isn't it?
The council spokesman added: “We have made it clear to the occupants that any further antisocial behaviour such as noise or litter problems is likely to trigger formal eviction proceedings.”You mean, up until now, their unauthorised camp hasn't done so?
