LATEST UPDATE: An unauthorised encampment on land off Wiggenhall Road has been cleared after legal action by Watford Borough Council. Our partners at Veolia are conducting a deep clean of the area.
6 June 2018
Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor, said: "We reacted very quickly to the illegal encampment, serving a legal notice on Friday night. The council gained a court order to evict them after a hearing on Tuesday morning and the encampment was cleared by mid-evening on the same day. A deep clean in this area is taking place and we will make the site secure. I want to reassure residents that Watford will not tolerate illegal encampments.”
