Latest statement on illegal encampments in the borough

Published on Tuesday, 27th September 2016

"Council staff and Police have visited the 19 newly arrived caravans at Donnithorne Avenue and have issued directions to leave the site.

"We have a court hearing on Thursday afternoon to seek an order to remove this group of travellers.

“Private Bailiffs have been instructed to evict the nine caravans on the private industrial estate on Hemdale Road by the landowner’s agent.

“The group of four caravans which were at Tavistock Drive have moved off overnight.  The site is tidy and access will be further restricted. 

“Court action planned for today was cancelled when the sites and vehicles they related to were voluntarily vacated.”
