Simon Kirby, MP for Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven urges both Sussex Police and Brighton and Hove City Council to move on travellers just arrived in Woodingdean.
The MP has written to Brighton and Hove City Council and Sussex Police urging them to move on travellers who have just arrived, once again, on the land adjacent to the Woodingdean Lawn Memorial.
Mr Kirby says he is calling for action following representations from many concerned constituents who have contacted him about this latest unauthorised encampment.
Mr Kirby said; “This is not the first time that we have had unauthorised traveller presence on the land adjacent to the Woodingdean Lawn Memorial and my constituents are worried that we will have a repeat of the disrespectful incidents that happened last time.
“Local people in Brighton Kemptown & Peacehaven are very concerned about the continual unauthorised traveller encampments we have had recently and also the time it takes for the Council and the Police to move them on.
“I need to reassure my constituents by advising them when this will happen and I have asked the Council and the Police to advise me accordingly.”
