OK. We think it goes like this.
Over a week ago, there were three illegal camps on Latton Common. A group of three to four way at the top of the common. A second small group at the top but nearer to the middle and then a large group of twenty to thirty caravans and cars near to the A414.
Last week, the press were sent a press release that said that “a number of illegal encampments” had been sent an eviction notice.
Of course, us press should check our facts because now we have found out that the main group ( the one near the A414) has not been served with a notice at all!
A Harlow Council spokesperson said: “The Latton Common illegal encampment was made up of two different groups and last week the Police served a section 61 notice on the group at the top of the common. This group has now moved on.
“Harlow Council is due in County Court tomorrow for the remaining encampment on Latton Common.
“As for the encampment on Coldharbour Road this is Essex County Council land so the County Council is dealing with this”.
