We got reports from residents about several caravans being parked up on the former Pelican Pub’s car park yesterday evening.

Councillors and the leader of the council contacted police and the owner of the land which we still believe is Green King and today 28 May 2021 they were gone from the car park leaving several items behind although because of the swift action it could have been a lot worse.

Pelican car park after travellers were told to leave

Today we found out that a large amount of caravans were seen on the Lookers car park opposite Trafford College on Stamford Brook Road in Broadheath and having checked we did see caravans and some people hanging around, it is not known if these were the same that was removed from Pelican car park.

Andrew Western said on his twitter feed: “Have spoken to officers to ensure flagged with GMP and landowner and advised Environmental Health, really need landowner to engage promptly.”
