Simon Kirby, MP for Brighton Kemptown, has written to Brighton Police urging swift action to move on unauthorised traveller encampments in the city.
Mr Kirby, who recently was able to raise these matters directly with the police said that many constituents have raised with him concerns when unauthorised encampments appear.
Mr Kirby has also asked to be kept appraised of traveller movements in Brighton and what action is being taken by police to move vehicles on when they are not on a designated site.
Mr Kirby said: ‘It is important for my constituents that effective action is seen to be taken when an unauthorised encampment takes place in the city. Prompt responses are also required and I have made this point to the local police.’
Mr Kirby is seeking a meeting with Brighton Police to discuss this and other issues.
