During the recent traveller encampment at Dedworth Manor a resident asked why the RBWM did not have better information about traveller encampments on their website.  I took up that suggestion with Cllrs Hashim Bhatti (Clewer North) and Cllr Jack Rankin (who is responsible for RBWM communications).  I’m pleased to say that the Council has now updated its website  to include information about what the council and police can do in these situations.  It also provides relevant contact numbers/ out of hours contacts.

This will not stop unauthorised encampments in Dedworth or anywhere else in the Royal Borough but it does at least help deal with them.
