The Travellers have left.

22:27 07/08/2018 - We attended Coventry Magistrates’ Court this afternoon and obtained an Order for Removal of the Travellers forthwith.  A Bailiff has been instructed and he has attended the Council offices to collect copies of the Order and will be serving them on the travellers this evening.  If they fail to leave tonight, the Bailiff will attend tomorrow morning  to ensure they comply with the order to leave.

The Court has indicated a listing time of 2 pm tomorrow afternoon (Tuesday 7th August 2018) at Coventry Magistrates’ Court for our application for an order for the removal of the Travellers. That Order will need to be served on the Travellers and they will have 24 hrs to leave.  If they fail to do so voluntarily then we will instruct Bailiffs to attend the site.  We will contact the Bailiffs today to put them on notice.
