Update on travellers' encampment issue

I have recently highlighted the concerns about the latest travellers' encampment at the Riverside Business Park.   I was on Wave 102 news earlier today about latest developments - click 'play' below to listen:
The encampment, following legal steps taken by the landowner at the Sheriff Court culminating earlier today, has moved on - but only to illegally occupy another site in South Road.    

The Riverside site is now properly secured but the fundamental issue is the slowness of the legal process.   Furthermore, the City Council provides a properly serviced site for the travelling community at Balmuir Wood, Tealing.
