It's quite unfortunate that UK residents must deal with a shortage of authorized sites for travellers in Newham in addition to the housing crisis in the country.
A shortage of approved places in Newham has culminated in a drastic increase in the number of travellers set up on illegal camps in Beckton, Canning Town, or Custom House such as car parks and playgrounds.
According to government records, in 2016 to 2017 the number of caravans setting up on authorized plots in Newham has been increased up to 17%.
Also, for socially leased land in Greater London, there has been a meek 2% rise from 2010 - 2017.
Municipalities and landowners in Greater London can evict and recover possession of their land in Canning Town, Custom House, or Beckton in two ways.
The first way is using the common law to remove travellers in Greater London.
Under common law, the Newham land owners can use the reasonable force to evict the travellers from their Greater London land as they have the rights to remove them from their property.
Enforcement agents undertake evictions in Newham under common law.
These Denbigh Franks agents will give the trespassing traveller 24 hours to vacate the property in Newham through a notice.
If the traveller does not comply to this notice and leave the location in Beckton, Custom House, or Canning Town, the agents from Denbigh Franks will forcefully remove the traveller, with or without the help of the police.
The use of common law has many benefits in Greater London.
The greatest benefit is the speed of the Newham eviction.
Usually, the eviction takes place within 24 hours, and thus, any damage to the property in Newham is less than what it would have been in a longer period of time.
The other option for Greater London local authorities and landowners is to obtain a writ of possession.
Under a writ of possession, the first step is to get an order of ownership in Newham.
This order is often kept secret from the travellers in Beckton, Custom House, or Canning Town and made out to an unknown.
As soon as you have been awarded the possession order in Newham, you are required to present it to the High Court so that the order can be carried out by Denbigh Franks's High Court Enforcement Officer (HCEO).
The most significant benefit to using a writ of possessions in Greater London is that it does not require given notice, as the HCEO from Denbigh Franks will determine whether to do so.
It's advantageous when dealing with travellers in Newham as it takes away any opportunity to steal from the property or damage the property when resistance to the eviction is expected in Greater London.
Preventing such situations from occurring in the first place is always preferable to dealing with an eviction in Beckton, Canning Town, or Custom House, and the potential time and money involved, so there are several things that Greater London landowners and local authorities can do to prevent these situations from occurring.
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 Newham.
You may also want to position large bollards, installing trenches, embankments, and earth bunds to secure your Newham land from unwanted and illegal visitors.
