Travellers

Nomadic life is not illegal, and Travellers have a basic right to this way of life. The council recognises that this has to be balanced with the rights of the general public to enjoy private and public land.

Service update - Friday 24 June 2016

Land at Preston Park - unauthorised encampment: We will be visiting this site with the police first thing on Monday morning to assess what the most appropriate enforcement action is to take. The police will be monitoring this encampment over the weekend.

Land at Stanmer Park - unauthorised encampment: We have already obtained a Writ of Possession for this land, which will enable us to arrarrange for an eviction to take place next week, so that booked events due to take place next weekend will not be disrupted.

Land at Hove Lawns - unauthorised encampment: We will be seeking possession of this land through the County Court, which once granted, will enable us to arrange for an eviction to be carried out as soon as practicable.

Land at Sheepcote Valley - unauthorised encampment:  We will be seeking possession of this land through the County Court, which once granted, will enable us to arrange for an eviction to be carried out as soon as practicable.

Land at Coldean Woods - unauthorised encampment: For legal reasons the eviction of Coldean Woods has been put on hold.
