Share this article

An inquiry for the public’s opinion is scheduled to take place this month to decide the future of a caravan site in Wickford (United Kingdom).

Basildon Council issued three enforcement notices regarding the site, situated south of Redlands, Hovefields Drive, claiming it was not granted planning permission.

A total of 11 people have filed appeals against the enforcement actions and a decision will be made by the Planning Inspectorate through an inquiry into the public.

The first enforcement notice, served on November 29, 2020, alleges without planning permission, operational development consists of the importation of hard-core, scalpings and associated material, and the leveling of imported material.

The development also consists of the laying of an additional area of hardstanding, the creation of roadways, and access routes. Lastly, it consists of the creation of subdivided plots by way of the erection of fence posts, fence boards, and fencing.

The notice that was served on December 4, 2020, alleges, with no planning permission, a material alteration of the land to allow the storage of caravans.

A third notice was issued on the same day, claiming in the absence of planning permission, the material change in use of the land to the stationing of caravans for residential occupation.

An inspector will host the public inquiry at The Basildon Centre, St George’s Suite, and St. Martin’s Square on Monday, July 25.

The hearing will get underway at 10 am.

Anyone can attend the inquiry and give their views or appoint someone to speak on their behalf, at the inspector’s discretion.
