Aside from crisis of housing around the UK, travellers have only a few certified sites in Hereford to depend on.

According to some government statistics, between 2016 and 2017, there was 17% increase in the number of caravans set up by travellers in Hereford on unauthorized plots of lands across the country.
From 2010 to 2017, there was only a 2% increment in socially leased areas in Herefordshire.
Usually, there are two options for the Herefordshire landowners or local authorities to recover the possession of land or evict nomads in Stretford, Hereford, or Eastwood.
Foremost, you will need to apply the general law in order to evict Herefordshire travellers.
When using common law, the landowner in Hereford has the right to start the eviction process in Herefordshire and reasonable force can be applied where necessary.
Enforcement agents undertake evictions in Hereford under common law.
The enforcement agents from Denbigh Franks will serve 24hrs notice to the travellers to vacate the site in Hereford.
After the 24-hour deadline expires and the traveller has not vacated the site in Stretford, Eastwood, or Hereford, then the Denbigh Franks enforcement agent will be back with equipment and if they feel the need police can also be called to remove the Travellers who are still at the sight.
There are many advantages for using a common law eviction in Herefordshire.
The speed of the eviction process in Hereford is the biggest one.
Mostly, the general eviction law is carried out within 24 hours and this implies that there will be very few damages to land or property in Hereford and reduced chances for trash damping.
The second available option for the Herefordshire landowners and the local authorities is to get possession writ.
When obtaining a writ of possession, you must initially get an order of possession for eviction in Hereford.
The warrant of ownership is rendered against'' persons unknown'' in interacting with travellers and squatters in Hereford, Stretford, or Eastwood.
When the order of ownership has been granted in Hereford, 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 advantage of opting for a writ of possession awarded by the high court in Herefordshire is that the HCEO from Denbigh Franks can decide whether to serve the notice or not based on the situation.
It is more beneficial at the time of dealing with the travellers in Hereford who refuse to move on from the land as it takes away the opportunity of damaging the property from them, they cannot steal or show any kind of resistance at the time of eviction in Herefordshire.
It is advisable to prevent this type of situations whereby you have to carry out evictions in Stretford, Eastwood, or Hereford that may consume your time and money, and there are various ways that local governments and property owners in Herefordshire can do to bar travellers from camping on their property.
Hereford landlords may decide to build fences as well as gates on their property and put up a big bollard around the gates and by so doing, you will prevent unauthorised persons from gaining entrance to the property.
Other preventive measures include securing your property in Hereford with embankment as well as trenches and earth bunds.
