The Court, having heard the application from Elmbridge Borough Council on 17th August, has granted an Order for the Removal of Persons and Vehicles unlawfully camped on Ditton Common off the Portsmouth Road. This means that the Council is now authorised to proceed with enforcement action, that being to remove the vehicles off the land with their occupants and their property. If the vehicles/caravans still remain on the land, having been served with this Order, bailiffs will be instructed to enforce this Order as soon as possible. A full clear up will be arranged and the site secured at the earliest opportunity.
Update, 22nd August - The encampment at Ditton Common (Portsmouth Road) has now been fully cleared and the site has been re secured.
