Poole council begin legal process to evict travellers from Turlin Moor

First published in News by

A LARGE group of caravans and motorhomes have moved onto land in Turlin Moor in Poole.

Borough of Poole say that they are aware of the unauthorised encampment on the open park land, off Blandford Road and Turlin Road in Hamworthy and confirmed that legal proceedings to move them would be started immediately.

It is believed that many of the travellers made their way onto the site on Thursday evening.

Some of the vehicles are thought to have come from a previous authorised encampment at Slades Farm in Bournemouth, after Bournemouth council obtained a court order for them to be evicted from that site on Thursday afternoon.

Cllr Mike Wilkins, ward councillor for Hamworthy West, said that the council is aware that there are a number of travellers on Turlin Moor Recreation Ground.

He added: “This area is well-used by residents, particularly in the summer months, and so we appreciate the concerns and frustrations that this unauthorised encampment is causing on the local community.

“Officers visited the site and the council is now following the legal process to secure an eviction on this site as soon as is possible.”

Security guards were tasked with manning the entrance of Slades Farm site after the travellers managed to gain access and council workers have since been carrying out the clean-up operation of the leftover rubbish.

Amy McDonald, parks manager for Bournemouth council, confirmed that officers attended Slades Farm yesterday morning and worked to make the area safe.

She added: “There was a considerable amount of waste left behind following the unauthorised encampment.”

Yeah thanks for that Echo. Brilliant.

How do any of us know if these travellers are Irish or Romany? How many are just free loading scum pretending to be genuine travellers? Not that it matters, they're all breaking the law. But it would be interesting to know, so there's a story for you news desk. Get one of your best journalists on the case right now and find out what's what.

So once again its open season for caravans/motorhomes to pitch up on council/private land and have a holiday for free. I do believe that in the area there are businesses that do cater for people that wish to pitch up and stay for a few days, i believe they are called touring parks or something similar.
Unfortunately it seems that you need to part with the coin of the realm to stay on these,although they do have all the facilities required,electric hook up and chemical waste disposal points.
Yes i live in Turlin Moor but i bet a pound to a penny if i were to put my caravan on Turlin Rec id be moved on in less than 3 hrs.
As for the motorhomes and cars used to tow the caravans they must be insured and taxed/tested so to do so they must have a permanent place of residence, so to coin a phrase travellers my A**E.
Impound the vehicles, they are breaking the law,the same law that applies to every person in the UK regardless of ethnicity. They are parked on land owned by the council and signs clearly state no motor vehicles (unless authorised) are allowed on the rec.
Time for some one that gets paid through my hard earnt taxes to grow a pair and actually uphold the oath they signed upto when taking office.
Maybe we should just all band together and ask all our relatives and friends to come down for a late summer holiday, bring their mobile homes as we have a great place that is near to our homes and means we dont need to put them up ??

CCTV or even heaven forbid a council "parking enforcement camera car" would be proof that that vehicle had broken the bylaws etc.

Under current legislation it is then down to the owner to provide proof of who was driving it at the time. Failure to do so can, and has led to, the seizure of the vehicle and it has been either sold at auction or scrapped.

Thats all the proof that is required under current legislation.

CHARGE THEM
Charge who? For what? The courts tend to be a bit fussy in this country about prosecutions having inconvenient stuff like identification of (specific) offenders, evidence, eye witnesses, etc don't they?
CCTV or even heaven forbid a council "parking enforcement camera car" would be proof that that vehicle had broken the bylaws etc.

Under current legislation it is then down to the owner to provide proof of who was driving it at the time. Failure to do so can, and has led to, the seizure of the vehicle and it has been either sold at auction or scrapped.

Thats all the proof that is required under current legislation.

The bit that is missing is the "growing a pair"
What bye laws? Do any exist for this piece of land? And we are not talking about a speeding ticket or other moving vehicle violation so I'm not even sure your idea that they would have to identify the driver holds any water. Even if they were to cooperate which is naive to say the least. Result? £1000's spent chasing tickets that have zero chance of being paid or enforced. Nothing to do with balls more to do with being realistic!

Maybe Baysider should go and have a look at the signs all around "this piece of land" .

Just to be clear, any penalty imposed on any vehicle (including horse drawn)for parking/non authorised access violations also include the any attachments ie trailers/caravans regardless of their use.

Any penalty/fine is loaded directly at the legal owner of said vehicle.

It is the vehicle that has been parked/used against any current( ie not resinded) laws and bylaws.
Yes i would spend 5-10k to sieze a 30-40k motorhome / car / caravan combination even after legal fees i would clear a 7k profit.

Multiply that by the number of vehicles currently on "this piece of land" and thats a damm good return and it may just make the rest stop and think.

Tell the Police or council how you feel. Let the Police or council feel your annoyance pain & anger. Venting on here is a waste.
Hell of a rant as us that was, calm down, contact the Echo and ask them to remove the news story, stay cool dude

I think the best bet is to make life difficult. Get some diesel refrigerator lorries to park at the site for a few nights. That will move them on. If not then get farmer palmer to fertilise the field. Not great for locals but our caravan friends will soon learn .

Now how about actually doing something useful for your readers and the community and get your part-time and utterly anonymous Editor to front a high profile campaign for a law change that would put an end to these nomadic tos*ers invading our open spaces, breaking the law, trashing the place, leaving their filth behind and doing so with impunity?

Good lord. It really is like a form of Tourettes with you isn't it? In what world would a newspaper do something likely to cut down on advertising revenue???
A paper worth paying for you cretin.
I don't think you're keeping up with the latest on newspaper sales numbnuts. They are plummeting hence generating online revenue through hits becomes even more vital. Therefore there is NO WAY they will they do anything to cut down on the biggest source of visits to this site. Get a grown up to draw you a diagram if that's not clear enough for you...
I know that moron. All the more reason for this pathetic excuse of a newspaper to get itself into the mainstream and back it's locals on the traveller issue. Is your name Toby by any chance? Upset at me calling you anonymous eh? Grow up child, get over it and grow a pair. Stand up to the nomadic scum and get rid of them once and for all. This town and it's people deserve better.
I give up. If you genuinely cannot comprehend why a business would consciously do something that results in a decrease in its profit I don't think you deserve any further of my time or effort. Crack on repeating your mantra, I'm sure the editor falls off their chair laughing at you but that's your problem...
You need to STFU ok. You're pathetic.
PLANNED DORSET GYPSY / TRAVELLER SITES 2014

Is the UK really that easy a touch for certain ethnic groups or communities from around Europe as well as the UK , the real travesty is that the British government are about to allocate tax paying public funds to establish the necessary cash to buy suitable grounds to try to help alleviate part of the available plot shortages for the Gypsy / Travelling communities, which although being an extraordinary humain gesture is also a real farce, as the various Dorset Councils among some other UK county councils propose to spend tax payers cash not really relieving big enough parts of the problems by buying large enough areas of ground to allow these passing travelers to stop over for certain periods of time, or to pitch for long term.
One MAD example is the proposal in utilizing the crumpets farm drive plot, actually being proposed as we debate, crumpets farm drive is with in open country side in the Dorset green belt, which is a fairly small parcel of ground possibly just under half an acre, this plot has a dilapidated garage upon it which is in need of total restoration, although it is more likely to be pulled down and further thousands spent on toilet / shower blocks etc, along with other various amenities and the much prized certificate of lawfulness, the plot has been priced by the owner in the past at the princely sum of 150 to 175 thousand pounds, add this to the price of the immediate road junction that WILL need widening at the opening of crumpets farm drive directly off the A350, to improve greater vision in both directions, its an accident hot spot , your not going to see much change from a ¼ to ½ a million public pounds, all of this expense for one or two Gypsy/Traveler pitches, the worrying thing is these county councils are actually proposing these small extortionately priced plots as a solution in part to needing areas with in Dorset for 2500 to 3000 Gypsy / Travelers to pitch up.
Why are they not investing in dilapidated farms, breaking them down, utilizing the various out buildings for the access to so called storage areas, for the travelling fair ground communities which their proposing to allocate designated areas to, along with this the many acres which some of these redundant farms can provide would allocate spare plots for future Gypsy / Traveler generations who will also in turn need places to pitch, after all we all need some place to call home, even if some are temporary stop offs.
Or is the solution with in some of these county councils a policy to purchase smaller grossly overly priced parcels of ground just to use up the allotted public funds to provide smaller spaces for the chosen few gypsy / travelers enabling councils to take on smaller more manageable groups of gypsy/travelers.
Hypothetically buy a small half to ¾ acre plot for 100 plus thousands for 2-3 caravans or spend realistic funds purchasing a farm for the virtual price of the rebuild of the smaller plot for 50 – 100 gypsy/travelers, giving the opportunity of many vacant spaces for future generations, after all these proposed plans will be put into motion weather the tax payer likes it or not, justifiably so as we all need a place to call home.
There are many fields advertised for sale through out Dorset, 6 to 10 acre fields on and off green belt priced from between 20 to 30 thousand, same spec as the ½ acre plot up for 100 thousand plus, which will provide much more room for safety and expansion with in the gypsy/traveler community , most gypsy/travelers will tell you all they want is some where to pitch up were their not going to be subjected to harassment by the local council and police force, the use of hygienic facilities would be a real plus , similar to shower blocks and wash rooms found on camp sites, its not the best, but its better than nothing, most gypsy/travelers are self sufficient, only the long termers need electrical hook ups, most are happy with their caravans.
In my opinion why are the gypsy/traveler communities not being directly assisted via council planners directly in finding plots in farms or fields after all its them we are spending the placed funds on, I’m sure they would be looking towards the future and purchase larger ground areas than wasting funds on ½ acre yards. Someone with real fore thought needs to take this proposal into hand, before the powers that be waste the funds on overly grossed properties and the back handed funds for the local cricket club or golf course.

Our football team have a friendly match booked in on the pitch there this weekend. We would have been paying (THAT'S RIGHT, PAYING) for the use of the pitch for the 90 minutes. Even if the pitch is clear of vehicles it will probably be unfit to play- i imagine all manner of tyre marks, rubbish, glass and excrement will be left. UTTERLY SELFISH ACTIONS NO OTHER WORDS FOR IT
