Solihull Council is aware that an unauthorised encampment is on Babbs Mill 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 the evidence gathering it is very important that local residents 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 a case is presented to them.

When any unauthorised encampment leaves a site the Council undertakes a thorough clean up and also assesses how the site can be secured to help prevent any future incursions.
