Thurrock Council has applied to the High Court for an injunction preventing unauthorised encampments. The first hearing took place on Wednesday 31 July 2019.
The hearing allowed for the service of the papers to commence on:
- 107 named defendants
- each of the sites that are to be protected against unauthorised encampments
The papers are available for inspection and can be downloaded below. Packs have also been posted at all the sites that will be subject to this injunction.
The claim for an interim injunction was heard on 3 September 2019 in the High Court of Justice, Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London.
Following the Order of Mr Justice Nicklin dated 24 May 2021, the Interim Injunction currently held by Thurrock Council has been amended. The Interim Injunction, as originally granted, contained a power of arrest against persons unknown. That power of arrest has now been discharged as against persons unknown, but remains in place against the named individuals.
