Action on flooding and unauthorised development at traveller site

25 February 2019
Thurrock Council has successfully secured another court injunction preventing unauthorised development of the Buckles Lane traveller site in South Ockendon.
The council has made it clear that it will not tolerate any unauthorised development in Thurrock.
An injunction was served in June 2018 to prevent expansion of the Buckles Lane site and there have been no breaches of that court order.
Following reports and investigations into further unauthorised development on another piece of land in the area, the council has now served a further injunction.
