3 What happens after you report
Once we receive a report we will visit a site to check:
- its tidiness
- how much it's disrupting local residents and businesses
- whether it's obstructing highways or public rights of way
- if there are any welfare or humanitarian issues.
We will tolerate an encampment for a short time if the campers are behaving, the site is tidy and other circumstances allow.
We are likely to evict if the camp is causing a nuisance or campers aren't behaving. Usually we agree an acceptable deadline with the campers. This is cheaper and quicker than taking legal action.
