Braintree Council invests in deterrent

August 4, 2017

Braintree District Council (BDC) has announced plans to invest £100,000 on protecting its open spaces from illegal traveller encampments over the next two years.  Any action taken to deter unauthorised camps sites in the area is good news for local residents and others. However businesses with large open areas still need to protect their grounds from unwanted visitors.  The unexpected arrival of a “few” caravans and trucks in a factory yard can cost companies time and money as they go through “the process” to remove them.
