Between late November 2017 and January 2018 we asked several thousand residents living on or near Ealing Common (the green open space) their thoughts on the traveller encampment issue. Here is the response:

Sajid Javid, with a proposal on changing the law regarding illegal encampments, registration of caravans, imposing fines, impounding vehicles due to non-payment, etc.
