A group of travellers has arrived on a stretch of green space in Grange Farm, Kesgrave.
The group of four caravans was believed to have arrived on Monday on the green space between The Farmhouse pub in St Isidores and Cardew Drift.
However, with no road access to the land, concern has been raised that the group may have had to drive on the adjacent cycle path to access the site.
A spokesman from Suffolk Coastal District Council, which owns the land, said: “Suffolk Coastal District Council has been made aware of an unauthorised encampment on park land near Cardew Drift.
“We are fully aware of the inconvenience this may cause regular users of the land and we would like to reassure local people that we will be working with our partners at Suffolk County Council and Suffolk police to resolve the matter as soon as we can, with the current legislation.”
Staff from the council have visited the site to carry out a welfare audit together with Suffolk County Council, to establish the wellbeing of the group.
The spokesman added: “If we do not follow this process fully, any necessary legal action in the future could be rendered null and void.
