Trav­ellers on pub­lic land told to move

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

BAILIFFS will re­move trav­ellers from pub­lic land in South Ruis­lip if they con­tinue to ig­nore or­ders for them to leave.

Two car­a­vans and a car have been parked on a cy­cle path in West End Road since Fri­day, Novem­ber 28.

Hilling­don Coun­cil has served no­tices or­der­ing them to leave, but they have not done so.

On Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 4, the au­thor­ity served them with court or­ders ob­tained from Uxbridge Mag­is­trates’ Court.

It is now ar­rang­ing for bailiffs to re­move the trav­ellers if they do not com­ply with the or­ders.

A coun­cil spokes­woman said: “As a coun­cil we refuse to tol­er­ate any­one who set­tles il­le­gally in our bor­ough and will take ro­bust ac­tion against them. We will hold them ac­count­able for any lit­ter and dam­age they may have caused.”

Ward coun­cil­lor Judy Kelly said: “I support proper des­ig­nated sites for trav­ellers but I can­not support their right to just park any­where they want.”
