Yesterday (Thursday 25 September) the council obtained a possession order from Brighton County Court to evict travellers from Wild Park in Moulsecoomb.
The council and Sussex Police are also working together to evict a group and their vans from a patch of downland next to Devil’s Dyke Road, Brighton, close to the A27.
In an update the council said on its website: “Unauthorised encampment of travellers on land at Preston Park – we will be visiting this site with the police as soon as practicable to carry out a community impact assessment to determine the most appropriate course of action.
“Unauthorised encampment of van dwellers on land adjacent to Devil’s Dyke Road – we have successfully applied to the county court for a possession order and are in the process of arranging an eviction, should the occupants fail to leave the site voluntarily.
