Latest court date confirmed for Land West of Hovefields Avenue
28 June 2017

Basildon Council is currently engaged in planning enforcement activity regarding several alleged breaches of planning regulations in the Hovefields Avenue / Drive area of Basildon.

The next High Court hearing date in relation to the unauthorised caravan site will be Wednesday 26 July, 2017.

The court will consider committal proceedings brought by Basildon Council against the defendants for breaching the injunction made on 18 October 2016 which prohibited further development of the site.

The defendants have submitted their own application to strike out the committal proceedings.

At the High Court on 7 June 2017, Mr Justice Singh allowed the injunction to be varied allowing six identified caravans to remain on the land. These caravans belong to those who had moved onto the plot since the Order was originally made.

An update will be provided by the council following the hearing.
