Brighton and Hove City Council launches legal bid to remove travellers

Brighton and Hove City Council has launched legal proceedings to remove three separate groups of travellers from three different sites.

The council started proceedings against Irish Travellers and English Gypsies in 15 trailers in Black Rock.

On Tuesday the group left land opposite Stanley Deason Leisure Centre in Wilson Avenue, currently leased by City College Brighton and Hove.

Council officials will also be in Brighton County Court on Wednesday for a possession hearing after a group of people in five lived-in vehicles moved on to land at Stanmer Park last weekend.

The council will also be in court today in a legal bid to move 20 lived-in vehicles from Waterhall playing fields, which they gained access to via a broken gate.
