Travellers on Monks Recreation Ground in Lancing

Have your say

LANCING Parish Council will have to go to court to try to move travellers from Monks Recreation Ground.

The council, which owns the land, issued a notice requiring all of the travellers to leave by yesterday afternoon.

Adur District Council said the travellers had not left as directed, and therefore the parish council would be attending a court hearing on Tuesday to request a court order.

“The court will decide whether to grant a court order to secure the land at Monks Recreation Ground on behalf of Lancing Parish Council.”

At Sompting Recreation Ground, Sussex Police were due to be evicting the unauthorised encampment today.
