Just walked up to have a look, seem to be a few police officers and council officials up there now, not that our new traveling neighbours seem to concerned!🙄
Too many laws...
Too few examples...

Why expect the police to be involved? They are retreating from the public as fast as possible. Only a few years ago you would have had a front counter to go into in the police office in Elms Road. Obviously too convenient, so that piece of family silver was flogged off. The next incarnation was in the Parish Offices which did away with public contact over a front counter, but was local. That had to go as well, sending the ‘local’ Neighbourhood officers six miles away to Amersham, where their responsibilities were increased and their numbers reduced. Gerrards Cross Police Station had a front counter where you could go and at least have a conversation with someone about local issues and a team was in the building able to be on their ground immediately. That again was obviously inconvenient, so yet more family silver had to go. The ‘local’ neighbourhood team for Gerrards Cross and New Denham now come from Taplow, 12 miles away. Good luck to anyone living in Willowbank if you actually think you have a neighbourhood team that has any interest in you.

Sorry, but all the hierarchy in the police seem to do is run away from the public and put themselves away from any real life issue. Those of us on the periphery have to fend for ourselves and good luck to you all. Yes, of course you can complain at Amersham Police Station. Take some time off work, (it is after all only open during the weekdays during office hours; any other time might be convenient for the public) pay for your parking and go in. I am sure they will ‘monitor the situation’ and ‘work in close co-operation with partner agencies.’ Don’t hold your breath waiting for something to actually happen.

Apparently, speaking to a poor resident who lives opposite this mess, she told me they have been served a notice, but have up to ten days to leave?😣

10 days...sounds a long time but at least gives us some hope something is being done.
I just drove past and to be honest the whole scene is an abomination... huge amount of caravans and cars, dogs running about (no doubt messing everywhere), kids on motorbikes, washing hanging out, gas canisters all over place and horses grazing.
I haven't seen anything as bad as this since I went on holiday to a Haven park down in Hastings.
Many thanks to those who are pushing the council to resolve this. Hopefully we can get our beautiful village back to normal soon.

Gate at Mill Meadow closed and locked.
Computers are a tool that we must direct with care.
