Update on travellers in Lancing and Worthing

COUNCIL officers attended court this morning (June 28) to remove travellers from Beach Green.

Adur District Council officers attended Worthing County Court and obtained an Order for Possession.

Travellers will now have 24 hours from the date of the order being made to pack up and leave the site.

If they fail to leave the site a warrant will need to be gained from the court bailiff to evict the travellers from the land.

At Hill Barn Lane Recreation Ground, also known as the Rotary ground, the council has an Adur Watch vehicle monitoring the area from a “safe distance”.

Council workers have also been sent to Bost Hill, near The Gallops, to monitor travellers there.
