Welcome to Noak Bridge Parish Council
The Parish Council has been notified of caravans which arrived on the Wash Road Playing Field on Sunday 27th September. This has been reported to Essex Police and also the Basildon Council out of hours emergency number. Unfortunately they were unable to update us as to what the process is but I will call tomorrow and hopefully I shall know more then.
Any updates will be posted on this website.
Monday 28th September: I have spoken to Basildon Council they are aware of the situation, as the land is owned by Basildon Council it is their role to clear the land. The process starts with the travellers being asked to move on, if this is not successful then legal proceedings will start. The matter is not generally dealt with by the police unless there is anything illegal happening on the site.
The travellers have been spoken to this morning, apparently they are French travellers which are here on holiday and not the travellers which have been moving round Pitsea and Wickford throughout the summer.
Update 3 Tuesday 29th September : The caravans have been served notice and have 24 hours to leave the site, if they do not leave then legal proceedings will start .
