Travellers illegally encamped on Second Avenue

campharlowTHIS AFTERNOON, seven caravans and 13 vehicles have moved on to council land next to Netteswell Plantation off Second Avenue where the town’s helipad is located.

Essex Police has served a section 61 notice for the travellers to leave by 12 noon tomorrow (Thursday).

Councillor Emma Toal, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Youth & Citizenship, said: “The Council is working closely with the Police in accordance with established protocols and it is in contact with the travellers.

“Residents expect us to protect the town’s green spaces and uphold the law and that is what we will do.

We hope to resolve this issue as soon as possible.

“By working with the Police and using the powers they have we hope we can avoid having to apply to the High Court to take formal legal action.”
