Part of a leisure centre car park in Sudbury is currently not in use after travellers pitched up over the weekend.
A total of 12 caravans arrived at Kingfisher Leisure Centre in the town on Saturday around 6.20pm, and the middle section of the car park is currently out of use.
A spokesman for Sudbury Town Council said a traveller liaision officer visited the Station Road site yesterday to conduct a welfare assessment.
The spokesman added that the town council is working with the police, Babergh District Council, who own the land, and other partner agencies to remove the illegal encampment.
A spokesman for Suffolk police said: “Police are aware of a traveller encampment in the Station Road area of Sudbury and we are currently working with the landowner, local council and partner agencies under agreed protocols around unauthorised encampments.
