Basildon Council carries out site visit as it investigates reports of further unauthorised development
20 April 2017

Bailiffs acting on behalf of Basildon Council visited land in Wickford today (Thursday, 20 April) after receiving reports of further development in breach of a High Court injunction.

The existing court order prohibits any further development taking place at land west of Hovefields Avenue, Wickford.

During today’s visit, evidence was gathered and papers were served on individuals found on the site.

Basildon Council attended the High Court on 7 April to lodge an application to ensure compliance with the existing injunction, which was granted in October 2016.

The council is awaiting notification of a future hearing date, which is likely to be in late May.
