Travellers at Horn Street recreation ground
20 July 2018
The travellers who arrived at Horn Street recreation ground last Sunday are still there, despite being asked to leave. The council’s solicitor has arranged for a claim of possession to be served on the travellers.
Hythe Town Council is using Part 55 Civil Procedure Rules to regain possession of the land.
The council has asked the court to use its power to shorten the normal time periods for a hearing of the claim, because the council believes the defendants have caused serious damage, specifically to the gate.
