Council seeks court order to remove unauthorised traveller encampment

Published on Monday, 24th April 2017

NBBC is seeking a court order to remove an unauthorised traveller encampment on Council land at the Dingle in Nuneaton. Directions to leave have already been served on the travellers and the court order will allow the Council to enforce an eviction.

The Council has secured the earliest available court session, which is 10am, tomorrow, Tuesday 25 April. If granted, the court order will be served on the travellers as soon as practically possible the same day.

If the travellers then remain within 24 hours the Council will take steps to evict them using bailiffs.
