Silchester (land adjacent to and rear of Culhams Mill, Little London Road) to a residential caravan site for travellers.

Update - Wednesday 22 February 2017

The council was granted an interim injunction on Tuesday 21 February at the High Court. This injunction prevents any further tree removal, laying of hardstanding, bringing onto the land of any other building materials, further caravans, mobile homes or buildings and any other construction work on the land adjacent to and rear of Culhams Mill, Little London Road in Silchester.

The injunction was served at the site on the evening of Tuesday 21 February and will remain in place pending the outcome of a planning application, appeal or enforcement notice, following consultation and an assessment of the merits of the case. The work that has already been completed and the touring caravans already on site will be considered as part of the planning process.

The council's Compliance and Enforcement Team received a number of reports on 20 February 2017 of a breach of planning control at Silchester (land adjacent to and rear of Culhams Mill, Little London Road) to a residential caravan site for travellers.

The situation is being proactively investigated. If you would like to receive updates, when they become available, please email enforcement@basingstoke.gov.uk to have your details registered.
