Illegal Encampments Survey

People across Stoke-on-Trent North, Kidsgrove and Talke, are sick and tired of their lives being made a misery whilst people pitch up, destroy the local area and it takes a long time for court action to be taken.

The Government will be bringing in new laws to make this a criminal offence. This will mean a £2500 fine, 3 months in prison and the crushing of vehicles. 

I am backing the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill to make this new law a reality. You can read more about this before completing the survey, here:…
