Breaches of a Court Order at Kirby Glebe

Published on Friday, 17th June 2022

The Council has been successful in the Courts when it followed up breaches of a Court Order at Kirby Glebe, off Atherstone Road in Hartshil

The defendant was given three custodial sentences to run concurrently, but suspended for twelve months and conditional on him paying the Council’s costs.

Cllr Mark Simpson said, "This decision was very welcome, as it supported the Council’s action in its attempt to prevent unlawful developments continuing at the site.   The Council will keep the site under review and may need to return to the Courts if the Order continues to be breached.

The Council has been involved for some time now in dealing with unauthorised encampments at the Kirby Glebe site in Hartshill. We have taken action in the Courts as well as under planning legislation and this is the first decision we’ve had.”
