REMOVING TRAVELLERS FROM PRIVATE LAND
Eviction of travellers under Common Law
This is most commonly preferred method of how to evict travellers from private land. Under Common Law (Halsbury’s Law of England Volume 97 (2020) 5th Edition) a landowner or their agent (Bailiff) has the right to remove, with no more force than is necessary any illegal occupier(s) / encampments, without the requirement of lengthy implications involving a Court Order.
LOCAL AUTHORITY LAND
Sections 77-78 Criminal Justice & Public Order Act 1994
The local authority acts are used to remove unauthorised encampments and apply to any land within the boundaries of the local authority area.
This process is used where individuals can be identified and is enforced by our Enforcement Agents (Bailiffs)
With this option, the local authority is required to ask the Trespassers to vacate the land immediately. If they do not comply then an order will be sought at the nearest Magistrates and direction will be issued requiring them to leave. Should the Trespassers not leave then officers, agents or contractors of the local authority may enter the land and take such steps as are reasonably necessary to ensure removal of the said persons, property and vehicles.
Should a trespasser be evicted in this way and return within three months, criminal sanctions apply.
