Update on the unauthorised traveller encampment at Gala Fields, Nuneaton

Published on Thursday, 17th January 2019

Yesterday afternoon, the Council attended a court hearing at Leamington Spa Court, to request an order for the removal of the unauthorised traveller encampment currently at Gala Fields, Nuneaton.

Representatives from the group of travellers also attended, and as they wished to make representations, the court decided not to proceed yesterday and to adjourn to allow more time for the hearing. This matter was outside of the control of the Council and was subject to other matters being heard by the Court that afternoon.

The Council has secured the next available court date, 2pm on Tuesday 22 January at Nuneaton Magistrates Court. 

We will keep residents informed of progress and pending the Court Order being granted, seek possession as soon as possible.
