Waltham St Lawrence gypsy eviction: Date set for judicial review

Related Stories

A date for a judicial review has been set for Gypsies in Berkshire embroiled in a five-year eviction battle.

In 2009, 10 traveller families set up home in Waltham St Lawrence on greenbelt land they own, but do not have planning permission to live on.

Windsor & Maidenhead Council wanted to evict them but the Gypsies were granted a judicial review by a High Court judge.

The Royal Courts of Justice hearing will be on 27 and 28 January 2015.

Initially the High Court had refused a request by the travellers for a review of the council's decision to remove them from the site in Shurlock Road.

But in November 2013, permission was granted at an appeal hearing after Mr Justice Mostyn ruled the council had not sufficiently proven the travellers would be given a suitable alternative site nearby.
