Unauthorised encampments

Can the Council remove unauthorised encampments from their land immediately?

No, the Council must:

  • show that the Gypsies/Travellers are on the land without consent
  • make enquiries regarding the general health, welfare and children's education
  • ensure that the Human Rights Acts 1998 has been fully complied with
  • establish ownership of land
