Last week the police served a section 61 order on the travellers to leave Chilbridge Road by 07:00 on Friday 24 July. They are now on bridleway 206/31 beyond the A40, just west of Woodstock Car Sales and Kingsley Cars. Cyclists / drivers on the A40 east-bound may find unexpected traffic in the area. The County Council is taking advice today.
If you have any concerns, please contact the Gypsy and Traveller Service on 01865 815545 / firstname.lastname@example.org or the police on 101 and Parish Council Chairman Gordon Beach on 01865 880979.
DATELINE 23/04/2015: The court order granted last Friday has been served on all vehicles this afternoon. The order allows one family to stay until 10 July at latest, when the youngest child has sat exams at school. All other persons must leave ASAP. It seems one couple has already moved out, as they have premises at Wallingford now. This leaves one male and 3 dogs and we look to enforcing the order by next Thursday.
DATELINE 05/03/2015: OCC delivered two weeks’ notice notice to travellers on the unauthorised encampment off Chilbridge Road on 18 February and they are due to quit today.
