For those of you thinking of Easter camping holidays!

Dealing with illegal and unauthorised encampments

Department for Communities and Local Government, Home Office and
Ministry of Justice, 27th March 2015

A summary of available powers to tackle the formation of illegal and
unauthorised camp sites and help the reclamation of land and property.

This is a summary of the powers that public bodies have to help them
deal with illegal and unauthorised sites. It is published jointly by the
Department for Communities and Local Government, the Home Office and the
Ministry of Justice.

The guide has been published alongside a joint ministerial letter to
council leaders, police and crime commissioners and police chief
constables about their response to unauthorised encampments.

"We are not for names, nor men, nor titles of Government,
nor are we for this party nor against the other but we are
for justice and mercy and truth and peace and true freedom,
that these may be exalted in our nation, and that goodness,
righteousness, meekness, temperance, peace and unity with
God, and with one another, that these things may abound."
(Edward Burrough, 1659 - from 'Quaker Faith and Practice')
