Not only do we have a housing crisis in the UK, but also limited authorised locations in Darlington where travellers can put up campsites.
This lack of sufficient authorized sites in Darlington cause travellers to camp in unauthorised grounds instead in Darlington, Bishop Auckland, or Newton Aycliffe, like parking lots and playing fields.
Government data indicates that there has been a 17% increase in the number of caravans on unauthorized plots and land not owned by travellers in Darlington from 2016-2017.
And the number of socially rented plots in Durham has dramatically reduced from 2010 to 2017.
Municipalities and landowners in Durham can evict and recover possession of their land in Newton Aycliffe, Bishop Auckland, or Darlington in two ways.
Using common law to evict travellers in Durham is the first option.
Common law states that landowners in Darlington have the jurisdiction to remove travellers from their piece of land in Durham and they can use some reasonable force if necessary.
Evictions under the common law in Darlington are normally done by enforcement officers.
It is important to understand that evictions under law are accomplished by Denbigh Franks enforcement officers who will provide the travellers with a notice that gives them 24 hours to leave the Darlington property.
If after the 24-hour notice the site in Bishop Auckland, Newton Aycliffe, or Darlington is not vacated then the Denbigh Franks enforcement officers will come back with equipment, together with police if need be, to remove any travellers who are there.
Eviction by common law in Durham comes with certain benefits.
The most significant benefit is the speed at which the removal in Darlington can be affected.
In many situations, a common law eviction will take place within 24 hours, which ensures that there is less opportunity to cause damage to the land or property in Darlington and reduces the possibility of flipping the fly.
The other choice for local authorities and landowners in Durham is to get a writ of possession.
Under a writ of possession, the first eviction step in Darlington is to obtain a possession order.
The possession order is usually made against "Persons Unknown" when referring to either squatters or travellers in Newton Aycliffe, Bishop Auckland, or Darlington.
When the order of ownership has been granted in Darlington, you can go on and forward it to the High Court, which is then imposed by the (HCEO) High Court Enforcement Officer of Denbigh Franks.
The major benefit of utilising an ownership writ and later transferring it to Durham High Court includes an order being considered unnecessary, but, Denbigh Franks High Court enforcement personnel may choose if to serve an order or not depending on the existing circumstances.
This is specifically important when dealing with travellers in Darlington as the surprise aspect takes away any chance to vandalize property, steal from the premise, or for when there is expected resistance in Durham.
If you can prevent situations like this from happening, that is preferable than dealing with evictions in Bishop Auckland, Darlington, or Newton Aycliffe, as doing such will not only take your time but it will cost you a lot as well, and you and the authorities in Durham should consider these factors and prevent unwanted situations from happening.
It is important to take some actions, such as putting fences and gates over the Darlington property and also, having big bollards at entrances is also a great alternative to prevent unapproved individuals from getting inside your property.
Embankments, earth bunds and trenches can also be used to secure the land in Darlington from unwanted visitors.
