Police say they are "aware" that travellers have set up camp in Ascot Drive in Derby, but have not taken action as the land is privately owned.
Officers were called to the former Arlington Automotive car park on the evening of Wednesday, June 24.
Almost a week later, three caravans, a van and a car could be seen in the car park, near the road's junction with Wetherby Road, Allenton,yesterday afternoon.
Coventry-based car parts maker Arlington Automotive left the site before the firm collapsed into administration in early May.
Administrators Duff and Phelps have confirmed the land owner is aware of the situation.
A spokesman for Duff and Phelps said: "Arlington vacated the property prior to the appointment of administrators and the owner is aware of the situation."

Derbyshire police said only the land owner has the legal right to ask the travellers to move on.
A force spokesman said: "We have been aware since last week, Wednesday, June 24, and attended early that evening.
"We were notified that they were there at around 5.15pm, we can’t be sure where they came from.
"Officers are regularly checking the site."
Derby City Council said it had not received any notification or contact regarding the issue.
The authority added that it is up to the private land owner to take action.
