Due to the housing critical situation in the UK, there has been an increase in the number of unauthorised traveller encampments in Doncaster.
Therefore, a number of travellers in Doncaster are using the unauthorized encampments in Doncaster, Adwick Le Street, or Goole like playing fields and car parks.
Governmental statistics suggest that there was a 17% rise in camping on unauthorized grounds in Doncaster from 2016 to 2017.
But between 2010 and 2017, there was only a 2% rise in socially rented plots in South Yorkshire.
Usually, there are two options for the South Yorkshire landowners or local authorities to recover the possession of land or evict nomads in Goole, Doncaster, or Adwick Le Street.
You can take advantage of the common law to evict them in South Yorkshire.
Under common law, landowners in Doncaster are allowed to evict travellers from their South Yorkshire land and use reasonable force if necessary.
Enforcement agents undertake evictions in Doncaster under common law.
The Denbigh Franks enforcement agents must issue a 24-hour notice to vacate the location in Doncaster to the passengers.
If after the 24-hour notice the site in Adwick Le Street, Goole, or Doncaster 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.
To use common law eviction in South Yorkshire has many benefits.
The most significant benefit is the speed at which the removal in Doncaster can be affected.
In most cases, it takes less than 24 hours to carry out the eviction in Doncaster, so, the traveller has less time to damage your property or the land as well as reduce the chances of illegal dumping of wastes on the property.
The second option land owners and authorities in South Yorkshire can use to evict the travellers is to obtain a writ of possession.
Receiving an order of occupancy is the first move to evicting under a custody warrant in Doncaster.
The order of possession is made against the "persons unknown" while dealing with travellers or intruders in Goole, Doncaster, or Adwick Le Street.
Once you are awarded the order for possession in Doncaster, you can transfer it to the High Court, there, the High Court Enforcement Officer (HCEO) of Denbigh Franks has the prerogative to enforce the order.
The main benefit of making use of a writ of possession in South Yorkshire and forwarding it to the High Court is that there is no need for a notice to be given, the Denbigh Franks HCEO undertakes that decision and he will determine if it is needed based on the situation.
This is specifically important when dealing with travellers in Doncaster as the surprise aspect takes away any chance to vandalize property, steal from the premise, or for when there is expected resistance in South Yorkshire.
Preventing such situations from occurring in the first place is always preferable to dealing with an eviction in Doncaster, Goole, or Adwick Le Street, and the potential time and money involved, so there are several things that South Yorkshire landowners and local authorities can do to prevent these situations from occurring.
Illegal visitors can be stopped from gaining access to the lands in Doncaster by installing gates and fences to barricade the land and installing prominent bollards at entry points.
In addition to these, trenches and earth bunds are effective ways of deterring illegal persons from gaining access to your Doncaster land.
