Update from High Court hearing for land west of Hovefields Avenue
07 April 2017

Representatives from Basildon Council attended the High Court today (Friday, 7 April) for an application to ensure compliance with an existing injunction.

The council is seeking permission to undertake work to restore land west of Hovefields Avenue, Wickford, where unauthorised development has taken place in breach of a High Court injunction granted in October 2016.

At the High Court today, the court has given a number of directions including one for the defendants to file statements by 24 April ahead of a further hearing, likely to take place next month.

During the proceedings, the judge also reminded defendants of the existing injunction, warning of the risk of contempt proceedings and not to place any further caravans, fences or hard standing on the land.
