Now Thurrock want to follow Harlow’s lead over illegal encampments

Politics / Thu 19th Mar 2015 at 03:15pm

THE LEADER of the Thurrock Conservatives is set to put forward a motion to challenge illegal traveller encampments.

In doing so, cllr Rob Gledhill wants to follow the example of Harlow District Council.

Harlow succeeded in obtaining an interim injunction at the High Court preventing 35 named travellers from settling on 450 named parcels of land across Harlow.

It came after the town found itself “under siege” for over eighteen months.

Cllr Gledhill’s motion states: “We call on Thurrock Council to investigate taking similar action to Essex and Harlow Councils and apply for an injunction to help stop unauthorised traveller encampments in Thurrock”.

The motion will be held on Wednesday March 25th at the Civic Offices in Grays at 7pm.
