Thriplow Heath encampment update
The numbers of caravans and vehicles on the site along the A505 has grown this week.
The district council is working to use section 77 powers of the Criminal Justice Act from back in 1994, which is at least a quicker process than taking committal proceedings for breach of the High Court injunction. It does have some downsides, but the land needs to be restored and the scale of the flytipping that has reportedly gone on there assessed. Whatever else happens, if the landowners are going to dig another ditch to prevent occurence, it might need to be a tad wider than the last one.
More updates next week.
