Housing issues in the UK are not hidden from us and along with other problems, authorised sites for the travellers in Shrewsbury is also the one.
The scarcity of legitimate sites in Shrewsbury has caused a dramatic growth in the number of travellers settling on illegal camps such as playing field and car parks in Shrewsbury, Ashford Bowdler, or Oswestry/Croeswallt.
According to the figures given by the government, a 17% rise has been witnessed in Shrewsbury in the number of nomads on unauthorised land not owned by travellers from 2016-2017.
And the number of socially rented plots in Shropshire has dramatically reduced from 2010 to 2017.
There are two alternatives for local authorities and landowners in Shropshire if they wish to evict travellers and get back possession of the land in Ashford Bowdler, Shrewsbury, or Oswestry/Croeswallt.
Firstly, you can start eviction in Shropshire by use of common law.
When using common law, the landowner in Shrewsbury has the right to start the eviction process in Shropshire and reasonable force can be applied where necessary.
Traveller evictions under the common rule in Shrewsbury are normally done by the law enforcement representatives.
The Denbigh Franks enforcement agents will send a notice to the travellers in which they have 24 hours to abandon the site in Shrewsbury.
If after the 24-hour notice the site in Oswestry/Croeswallt, Ashford Bowdler, or Shrewsbury 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.
Using the common law in Shropshire offers tons of benefits.
The main benefit is the speed at which a traveller is removed from Shrewsbury.
In most cases, it takes less than 24 hours to carry out the eviction in Shrewsbury, 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.
Secondly, landowners and local authority in Shropshire should be ready to receive possession summons.
To get an 'order of possession' is the first step towards eviction in Shrewsbury under possession writ.
The order of possession is made against unknown persons when you're dealing with squatters and travellers in Shrewsbury, Oswestry/Croeswallt, or Ashford Bowdler.
Once the possession order has been issued in Shrewsbury, the plaintiff can then transfer it to the High Court for enforcement by a High Court Enforcement Officer (HCEO) from Denbigh Franks.
The most significant benefit to using a writ of possessions in Shropshire is that it does not require given notice, as the HCEO from Denbigh Franks will determine whether to do so.
When having to deal with Shrewsbury travellers, this can be crucial as the surprise will remove opportunity to steal from the premise, vandalise property or this can combat expected resistance in Shropshire.
You don't want to spend more money and time in the process of evicting travellers from your property in Oswestry/Croeswallt, Shrewsbury, or Ashford Bowdler, so for land owners and local authorities in Shropshire, there are options available to find long term measures.
These include erecting fences and gates on your piece of land in Shrewsbury, putting bollards on your property entrance is among the best ways of preventing access to your land by unauthorised persons.
On top of this, trenches, earth bunds, and embankments, are as well good methods of securing an area of land in Shrewsbury from unauthorized visitors.
