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

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. A planning application was subsequently submitted and refused. An Enforcement Notice was served following following the decision to refuse the planning application. An appeal was submitted against the service of an Enforcement Notice and we are currently awaiting a date for a Public Enquiry regarding when this will take place.
