Update on travellers at Donnithorne Avenue, Hemdale Business Park and Tavistock Drive

Published on Monday, 26th September 2016

Latest information on the traveller encampments around Nuneaton.

A council spokesperson said: “We are aware that the travellers who were recently at Tiverton Drive (last Thursday – Friday) have relocated to Hemdale Business Park off Eastboro Way, which is private property. Further removal is a matter for the property owners or police.

"Another group of four caravans at Donnithorne Avenue were issued directions to leave by the council on Friday and left over the weekend.

"A separate group of four caravans occupied by one extended family near Tavistock Drive have also been issued with ‘direction to leave’ notices.  Due to a welfare issue and we are consulting with police and county council over alternative sites for them.  If necessary, the council will be in court on Tuesday should other options be declined.”
