The application follows recent events where an unauthorised encampment arrived at Mengham park and damaged tree saplings planted for the Queen’s platinum jubilee.
Twenty-eight residents have already commented on the application, all of which are in support of the scheme.
One resident said: ‘I very much support this initiative.
‘The proposed works mean that the park will be maintained for the use to which it is intended.’
Another resident added: ‘Fully support this proposal… This park is enjoyed by many children and adults as well as a local community football club to support the wellbeing and fitness of young children.’
Charities such as the Traveller Movement and Friends, Families and Travellers were approached for comment.
