Finding that travellers have settled in your public or private car park can have a serious impact on your company and surrounding businesses. Being unable to operate your car parking facility can have a negative financial impact on local businesses, especially in shopping centres and districts, as customers and car park users are reluctant or unable to use the space.
If you have found that travellers have settled on your land, it is important you request they move on as soon as possible and gain appropriate assistance to help vacate the area to avoid causing significant damage to your business and those of others.
If you have been unable move the travellers on upon initial request, or feel unsure about the safety of asking the group to leave, then you should seek assistance from a certificated enforcement officer. With their assistance, your land can be repossessed quickly and legally, allowing customers and other car park users to begin using the space again.
A certificated enforcement officer will be able to assess the situation and determine whether the travellers can be moved on safely and quickly or whether a police presence is required to assist with the eviction.
