Politics / Sun 14th Sep 2014 at 05:07pm

THERE are currently four unauthorised traveller encampments in Harlow. The encampments are as follows:

Land adjacent to Aylets Field and Latton Bush Centre – land owned by Harlow Council

Five caravans arrived on the land on 8 September 2014 and were served with a direction to leave the land on or before 10am on 9 September 2014. The travellers did not move and so Harlow Council issued proceedings into the County Court. A hearing has been listed for Monday 15 September 2014 at 10am, and the travellers have been served with a summons.

Katherines Way – land owned by Essex County Council (ECC)

This group of 11 caravans arrived on the land on Monday 8 September 2014 and ECC served them with a direction to leave by 9.15am on Wednesday 10 September 2014. As they did not leave ECC issued court proceedings and have a hearing set for Tuesday 16 September 2014.

Coldharbour Road – land owned by Essex County Council

There is a group of three caravans on this land. A direction to leave on or before 1pm on Wednesday 10 September 2014 was served; they have not left so ECC will issue court proceedings to court.

Elizabeth Way – land owned by Essex County Council

ECC have served this group of around 19 caravans with a direction to leave by midday on Friday 12 September 2014. The caravans in this encampment were previously situated at Newhall; Essex Police served a Section 61 notice on Tuesday 9 September 2014 requesting that they left the land.
