There is also a lack of approved places in Norfolk for travellers to set up during the housing crisis in the UK.
The limited number of accredited sites in Norfolk has resulted in an exponential rise in the population of travellers camping on illegal grounds such as playing fields and car parks in Norwich, King's Lynn, or Great Yarmouth.
Moreover, government data illustrates that there has been a 17% increase in the number of caravans on unapproved places in Norfolk.
In contrast, between 2010 and 2017, there was just a 2% increase in lands in Norfolk rented socially.
If the local authorities or land owners in Norfolk want to regain possession of their properties in King's Lynn, Norwich, or Great Yarmouth, they need to evict travellers, which, they have two options.
The first option is to use the common law for their eviction in Norfolk.
The common law allows landowners in Norfolk to evict travellers from their Norfolk property and can use reasonable force if necessary.
This eviction of travellers in Norfolk is often done by enforcements agents.
Also, such evictions are carried out by enforcement agents from Denbigh Franks who would issue a 24-hour ultimatum to those travellers directing them to vacate the Norfolk site.
The Denbigh Franks enforcement agents come with the proper equipment to evict the travellers if they do not leave the place in Norwich, King's Lynn, or Great Yarmouth within 24-hour period.
Common law eviction has several advantages in Norfolk.
The speed of the eviction process in Norfolk is the biggest one.
In a lot of instances eviction carried out under the common law can be carried out within one day, amplifying there is less time for possible damage to the land or property in Norfolk and therefore reducing fly tipping chances.
Secondly, the local governments and landowners in Norfolk can opt to get a writ of possession.
Foremost, while removing a tourist using ownership writ in Norfolk, you may be required to get a possession notice.
This order is often kept secret from the travellers in Norwich, King's Lynn, or Great Yarmouth and made out to an unknown.
As soon as you have been awarded the possession order in Norfolk, 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 key advantage of using a writ of possession in Norfolk which is transferred to the High Court is that serving a notice is not required and the Denbigh Franks HCEO takes the decision, as determined by the situation.
Another advantage of using this course of action is that it catches Norfolk travellers by surprise, thus reducing the likelihood of them resisting, or trying to damage the property as an act of protest in Norfolk.
Avoiding these situations is always desirable to handle an eviction in King's Lynn, Great Yarmouth, or Norwich and the time and cost involved, so, in order to prevent it, there are many actions that can be taken by local authorities and landowners in Norfolk.
Landowners in Norfolk can erect fences and gates around their land and put in place huge bollards at the entrances, and doing so will greatly help in preventing authorized individuals from entering a piece of land.
Also, earth bunds, trenches and embankments may also assist in safeguarding land in Norfolk against intruders.
