Legal Trespasser Removal
Traveller eviction is a big issue across the UK as open land, car parks, industrial areas and development sites are frequently targeted by roaming trespassers (also referred to as ‘travellers’ or ‘gypsies’) looking for transient locations to set up illegal encampments.
Camps quickly grow as news of unchallenged access spreads and more travellers, vehicles and caravans head for the site.
With little regard for surroundings or neighbours (and no amenities to handle rubbish generated by itinerant travellers) encampments quickly become areas strewn with litter, human and animal waste – meaning they also pose environmental problems (more information).
Property is often damaged (such as broken fences and gates) and theft from local shops and houses is frequently reported.
