Within the UK's housing crisis, there's also a lack of approved places in Slough for travellers to settle in.
Because of this factor, an increase in the number of travellers in Slough is observed setting up on unauthorized campsites in North Ascot, Iver Heath, or Gerrards Cross which include car parks as well as playing grounds.
Looking at the government figures, between 2016 and 2017, a 17% increment in the total number of Slough travellers on unlicensed sections not managed by travellers was realised.
On the other hand there was only a 2% rise in socially rented plots in Berkshire between 2010 to 2017.
If the local authorities or land owners in Berkshire want to regain possession of their properties in Iver Heath, Gerrards Cross, or North Ascot, they need to evict travellers, which, they have two options.
The first option is to evict them in Berkshire using the law.
The common law grants land owners in Slough the right to remove travellers from their Berkshire property and the right to do this with reasonable force when necessary.
This eviction of travellers in Slough is often done by enforcements agents.
The tourists are normally served with an order to move out of premise in Slough within a span of 24 hours by Denbigh Franks enforcement agents.
Assuming the travellers have not vacated the site in North Ascot, Iver Heath, or Gerrards Cross within the specified period, Denbigh Franks enforcement agents will come back with equipment and possibly the police if need be, to evict any traveller still camping on the land.
The common rule on eviction in Berkshire comes with a number of benefits.
The benefits of eviction of travellers in Slough using common law include the speed of the operation.
The common law minimizes the risk of potential damage on the Slough property since it is enforced within 24 hours, and this short time frame also limits the chances of fly tipping.
Secondly, landowners and local authority in Berkshire should be ready to receive possession summons.
Under a writ of possession, the first eviction step in Slough is to obtain a possession order.
When making use of the possession order to handle travellers and squatters in North Ascot, Gerrards Cross, or Iver Heath, the notice is normally kept clandestine.
Once the order for possession has been conferred in Slough, the claimant can then transfer it to the High Court and then enforced by the HCEO (High Court Enforcement Officer) from Denbigh Franks.
The main advantage of using a possessions writ and transferring to High Court the order in Berkshire is that notice is not necessarily given, as the Denbigh Franks HCEO will decide it depending on the situation, that either to give the notice or not.
It's advantageous when dealing with travellers in Slough as it takes away any opportunity to steal from the property or damage the property when resistance to the eviction is expected in Berkshire.
Avoiding the occurrence of these types of situations in the first instance is always better than dealing with eviction in Gerrards Cross, North Ascot, or Iver Heath and the possible money, time and effort involved, so there are many things local authorities and property owners in Berkshire can do to avoid the occurrence of these situations.
Slough 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.
In addition, trenches, earth bunds and embankments can also help in preventing unwanted visitors from entering your land in Slough.
