Bradley Smith, community warden supervisor for Sudbury Town Council, said the encampment arrived in Station Road Lorry Park at 2.35pm yesterday.
He said: “There are five caravans and eight associated vehicle at the site.
“The area is very clean and tidy and they appear to be abiding by what we have told them so far.”
The Norfolk and Suffolk Gypsy, Roma, Traveller Service team was notified by the council and a welfare assessment was carried out.
