ACTION ON ILLEGAL TRAVELLERS Peter Booth, Kelvin Poplett and Chris Sandland, the Conservative local action team for East Brighton have called on Brighton and Hove City Council and the Police to develop a suitable plan to remove illegal travellers, who regularly camp around East Brighton Park, opposite Wilson Avenue. Local Conservative Action Team member Peter Booth said: “All too often travellers are setting up illegal encampments in East Brighton. My colleagues and I have written to the Council to ensure they have appropriate plans in place to move these travellers on as swiftly as possible to minimise the effect on local residents. We will be keeping a close eye on this matter.”

East Brighton Conservative Action Team member Chris Sandland said: My East Brighton colleagues and I attended the meeting of the Hospital Liaison Group to discuss the effects of the proposed redevelopment on existing local residents.
