Travellers back on Deeside Leisure Centre land
Members of the traveller community have once again set up camp on land behind Deeside leisure centre.
Around thirteen campervans and caravans have parked up behind the 3G football pitches at the leisure centre, they arrived Thursday evening.
In March a similar sort of number of travellers pitched up in the same spot disrupting the use of the 3G football courts and Rugby pitch which were out of use for around 8 days.
This time around the pitches have remained open so far.
Mike Welch, Principal Leisure Services Officer said,
“Following arrival by travellers at Deeside Leisure Centre earlier this week the Council are taking all the necessary and appropriate steps to deal with the matter as quickly as possible . In addition the Council are awaiting the delivery and installation next week of a height restricting barrier that will help address this issue for the future.”
The entrance to the rear of the leisure centre has no gate or barrier currently;y and is open to anyone wanting to drive on at any time of day or night.
