Travellers have moved onto Cambridge University’s northwest development site prompting concerns from former Cambridgeshire County Councillor, Belinda Brooks-Gordon.

She has written to residents living near the site to keep them up to date on the situation as the university management team works with the county council to find a resolution.

The travellers broke a lock to gain access to the site and have moved six families in six caravans onto the land. There are young children among the group.

Belinda said: “This encampment has caused residents some concern. I wanted to make sure that everyone living near the site was kept fully aware of what was happening and the action the university management team was taking.

“These traveller families have told the county council’s travel enforcement officer that they are passing through and I want to make sure that happens and in a way that considers the welfare of the children and is without incident .”
