Along with the residence crisis in the UK, there aren't many authorized camping grounds for travellers in Chester.
The crisis of shortage of authorised site in Chester has only lead to the rise of travellers setting up on unauthorised places in Heswall, Chester, or Shotton including car parks and playing fields.
According to the Government's statistics, the number of caravans in Chester on unauthorized plots has increased by 17% from 2016-17.
In contrast, from 2010 to 2017, there has been a mere 2% rise in the number of socially leased land in Cheshire.
Cheshire landowners and local authorities have two ways to reclaim land ownership and expel visitors in Chester, Heswall, or Shotton.
First of all, you can vacate them using the common law in Cheshire.
When using common law, the landowner in Chester has the right to start the eviction process in Cheshire and reasonable force can be applied where necessary.
This eviction of travellers in Chester is often done by enforcements agents.
Also, such evictions are carried out by enforcement agents from Denbigh Franks who would issue a 24-hour ultimatum to those travellers directing them to vacate the Chester site.
If the 24-hour grace expires and the travellers remain on the property in Chester, Shotton, or Heswall, Denbigh Franks enforcement agents will visit the property with the necessary equipment (including the police if required) to evict any traveller found on the land.
There are numerous advantages of applying the common law in eviction in Cheshire.
The main benefit is the speed at which a traveller is removed from Chester.
Eviction within 24 hours is seen in many cases under this law that ultimately reduce the chances of fly-tipping and it also means that the site in Chester will be less damaged.
The second option land owners and authorities in Cheshire can use to evict the travellers is to obtain a writ of possession.
Getting an order of possession is the first step to evicting in Chester under a writ of possession.
The possession order is usually made against "Persons Unknown" when referring to either squatters or travellers in Heswall, Shotton, or Chester.
Next, in Chester the order would be transferred to the High Court from where it would be enforced by a High Court Enforcement Office (HCEO) from Denbigh Franks.
When moving a writ of possessions to the High Court in Cheshire, it is advantageous that the HCEO from Denbigh Franks can plan on if notice will have to be served or not.
This is helpful especially when dealing with the travellers in Chester as the element of surprise prevents the risk of damaging and stealing from the property or forming a resistance to eviction in Cheshire.
There are several things local authorities and landowners in Cheshire can do to stop these situations from arising, as prevention is always better when dealing with an eviction in Chester, Heswall, or Shotton and the potential time and money involved.
One thing that can be done is to put fences or more one can have large billboards installed at the entrances, and both are great ways of stopping any unauthorised person from entering the premises in Chester.
On top of that, embankments, earth bunds and trenches are also great methods of protecting a site in Chester from unauthorised individuals.
