The following link provides more information on the council's approach to unauthorised encampments.

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 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.
