Default Removing travellers from land

Did you know... Councils, landowners and local authorities can remove
travellers from land occupied without the landowner's permission. Police can
remove trespassers -without a court order- if they have damaged land or
property, used threatening behaviour, or if they have six or more vehicles
on the land. So, have a look next time at how many caravans are parked at
the bottom of your garden so to speak.

Default Removing travellers from land

Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 Section 61
6.7 Under s61 of the CJPOA, the police have discretionary powers to direct
trespassers to leave land. The senior police officer present can direct
trespassers to leave if reasonable steps have been taken by or on behalf of
the landowner/occupier to ask them to leave and there are two or more people
intending to reside on the land. Any one of three further conditions must be
met:

a.. if any of those persons has caused damage to the land or to property
on the land; or
b.. used threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour towards the
occupier, a member of his family or an employee or agent of his; or
c.. those persons have between them six or more vehicles on the land.
Remember, a caravan is a vehicle and so is the van/car towing it. So it may
only take a group of 3 travelllers in order for police to direct them off
the land.

Plod are absolutely terrified of Pikeys so if you're relying on this bit of
legslation to remove them from your land you're in for a nasty shock.
Bearing in mind that on just about every illegal Pikey site every one of
those conditions is met umpteen times over yet plod never intervenes until
the poor sod who owns the land has got an eviction order and they have to go
in to stop the bailiffs getting a kicking. By this time of course many
months have passed and the land is now just about unusable to anybody apart
from other Pikeys and a massive cleanup bill is left behind.

Except in very unusual circumstances normal laws don't apply to Pikeys so
don't expect to see them enforced.
