Hucknall: Council applies for court order to evict travellers from town site

Ashfield District Council has applied for a court order to evict travellers from land off Washdyke Lane in Hucknall.

Wednesday, 3rd August 2022, 5:02 pm

The travellers have already been moved off various areas of land in the town and have ignored the latest requests by the council to leave the land they are currently on.

As a result, a court application to evict them has now been made by the council.

The case will be heard on Friday, after which time the encampment will be moved on.
