Traveller sites court date

Traveller sites in north Kirklees will be the subject of court proceedings this week, as Kirklees Council hopes to get permission to evict travellers from Hightown and Liversedge.

In a hearing yesterday the council got permission to evict travellers in a site in Wheelwright Drive, Dewsbury. The warrant has been issued with the County Court bailiffs and the council says it is currently awaiting confirmation of the appointment for the eviction.

A court hearing about a site at Miry Lane, Hightown will take place today at 12.15pm at Huddersfield County Court.

A hearing will also take place at the court regarding a site in Millbridge Park, Liversedge on Thursday at 11.45am.
