Unauthorised encampments on Council land

Wednesday 28 August 2019 Unauthorised encampments on Council land


The Council is aware of two unauthorised encampments in the District and we are taking legal action to recover possession of the land as soon as possible.

The encampments are at Hardwick Lane, Sutton in Ashfield and Washdyke Lane, Hucknall.

Our Community Protection team are working closely with the Police to ensure the site remains peaceful.

We are aware that the arrival of travellers can create tension and concern amongst residents. We would ask that the public do not engage with the occupiers, but report any concerns to our Private Sector Enforcement team on 01623 457345 or privatesectorenforcement@ashfield.gov.uk

Concerns in relation to criminal behaviour should be reported to the Police on 101.
