Unauthorised encampment at Babbs Mill - update

Wednesday 14 March

Solihull Council is advising residents that the unauthorised encampment recently located on Babbs Mill Park has moved.

When any unauthorised encampment leaves a site we undertake a thorough clean up and also assess how we might secure, if we can, the site to guard against any future incursions.

Tuesday 13 March

The unauthorised encampment is still at Babbs Mills Park. This is due to the recent and ongoing weather conditions which has created water logged ground conditions, making it impossible for them to leave the site.

We will continue to work with the police and travelling community to assist them in finding a way to remove their vehicles from the park in a safe way, as soon as possible.

Thursday 8 March – 4:30pm

The Council has completed all of the necessary site assessments and the unauthorised encampment has been issued with a notice to leave the site by Sunday 11 March.

If they fail to leave the site by this time, the formal eviction process will begin.

Wednesday 7 March – 5pm

Solihull Council is aware that an unauthorised encampment is on Babbs Mill Park.

The Council is working closely with the police and undertaking the necessary legal actions to move them on as quickly as possible.

To support our evidence gathering it is very important that as many local residents as possible report any anti-social or criminal behaviour to the police by calling 101. This helps build a picture of the situation for the court to consider when we present our case to them.

When any unauthorised encampment leaves a site we undertake a thorough clean up and also assess how we might secure, if we can, the site to guard against any future incursions.
