Bassetlaw District Council is aware of a number of caravans and associated vehicles that are occupying land at the Tommy Simpson Playing Field in Harworth & Bircotes. It is believed that these vehicles have moved from a previous unauthorised encampment on Grosvenor Road.
Council Officers served notice on those occupying the land at the Tommy Simpson Playing Field on Wednesday 24th August asking them to move on. This notice informs the occupants that if they have not vacated the land within 24 hours of the notice being served, the Council will apply to the courts to regain possession of the land.
As the land has not been vacated, on Thursday 25th August we applied to Mansfield County Court in order to regain possession of the land. The Court Hearing is listed for Monday 5th September.
