Because of the UK housing crisis, there has been a dramatic increase in the numbers of unauthorized encampments - a move that is bolstered by the shortage of authorized sites in Gloucester for campers.
The crisis of shortage of authorised site in Gloucester has only lead to the rise of travellers setting up on unauthorised places in Barnwood, Abbeydale, or Coney Hill including car parks and playing fields.
According to statistics from the government, from 2016 to 2017 there was a 17 percent increase in the number of travellers on unauthorized areas in Gloucester that are not owned by travellers.
In contrast, from 2010 to 2017, there has been a mere 2% rise in the number of socially leased land in Gloucestershire.
Local authorities and landowners in Gloucestershire that are looking to regain the possession of their land and evict travellers in Abbeydale, Barnwood, or Coney Hill have two options.
The first option to take to remove them in Gloucestershire is using common law.
Landlords in Gloucester are in their right to evict travellers from their property in Gloucestershire and are allowed to use appropriate force if needed.
Evictions under the common law in Gloucester are normally done by enforcement officers.
The travellers are served with an eviction notice by enforcement agents from Denbigh Franks, giving them a duration of 24 hours to move out of the site in Gloucester.
If travellers don't vacate the place in Barnwood, Abbeydale, or Coney Hill within the given time, then agents from Denbigh Franks will go back with the equipment and police if needed, to remove the travellers from the land.
To use common law eviction in Gloucestershire has many benefits.
The greatest benefit is the speed of the Gloucester eviction.
In most cases, an eviction using common law can be done in 24 hours, which means they have little or no time to cause damages to the property or land in Gloucester and the risk of fly-tipping is reduced.
Another choice is land owners and local authorities in Gloucestershire obtaining a writ of possession.
In this case, the first thing to do is to get an order of possession in Gloucester.
The order of possession is made against the "persons unknown" while dealing with travellers or intruders in Barnwood, Abbeydale, or Coney Hill.
Once the possession order has been served in Gloucester to the High Court the claimant can then transfer it to be enforced by a Denbigh Franks (HCEO) High Court Enforcement Officer.
One of the biggest benefits you can enjoy from transferring a writ of possession in Gloucestershire to the High Court is that giving a notice is not mandatory and that decision is left to the Denbigh Franks HCEO exclusively.
Thus, you won't have to worry about travellers in Gloucester damaging your property or stealing from your property as you don't have any idea of how they would respond to the eviction in Gloucestershire.
If you can prevent situations like this from happening, that is preferable than dealing with evictions in Coney Hill, Abbeydale, or Barnwood, as doing such will not only take your time but it will cost you a lot as well, and you and the authorities in Gloucestershire should consider these factors and prevent unwanted situations from happening.
A great way of preventing unauthorised persons from entering your land in Gloucester is to put gates and fences around the property and having big bollards at entrances.
Moreover, embankments, earth bunds, and trenches are a great way of keeping the security of land in Gloucester from uninvited visitors.
