UK, Imminent “Forced Eviction” by Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead

In 2009 a group of Romani Gypsies bought some land where they moved their caravans and applied for planning permission. A call to support their struggle against the forced evictions planned by RBWM in about four weeks time.

In 2009 a group of Romani Gypsies bought some land.

Because there was nowhere else available in the district, they moved their caravans onto their land and applied for planning permission.

The families have been living there ever since.

The council refused their application for planning permission, and so they appealed. They lost their appeal.

In 2012 the families applied again for planning permission.

The Royal borough accepted the application, and have now refused to determine their application, choosing instead to evict the families onto the road side in about four weeks time.

The according to a local farmer the Council have asked people living nearby not to sell land to Travellers.

One of the people in the planning department has been pretending to be a Traveller Liaison Officer, and making site visits without even applying for a CRB Certificate.

RBWM admit they don’t have anywhere else for the site residents to move to.

If the Forced Eviction proceeds as planned the Human Rights of the site residents will have been ignored by RBWM, particularly:

• Article 1 - Article 1 of the First Protocol: Protection of Property.

• Article 6. - The HRA refers to a right to a fair hearing.

• Article 8. - Right to respect for private and family life.

• Article 14 - Prohibition of discrimination.


If there is anything you can do to help the site residents please contact us via:


If you agree that the Council should considered the new application submitted by the site residents contact RBWM and tell them.
