Update 9am - Tuesday 19 September

Solihull Council is aware that an unauthorised encampment is on Hillfield Park.

The Council is working closely with the police and undertaking the necessary legal actions to move them on as quickly as possible.

To support our evidence gathering it is very important that as many local residents as possible report any anti-social or criminal behaviour to the police by calling 101. This helps build a picture of the situation for the court to consider when we present our case to them.

When any unauthorised encampment leaves a site we undertake a thorough clean up and also assess how we might secure, if we can, the site to guard against any future incursions.
