Update: Unauthorised encampment, Chobham Road Recreation Ground, Frimley

The group of people have now vacated Chobham Road Recreation Ground. SHBC officers and bailiffs were mobilised and on site primed to take action shortly after they arrived, and knowing this the group left of their own accord without any notices being served.

Our officers are now in the process of securing the site and ensuring it is safe for use.

Our thanks go to Surrey Police for their support and partnership working, and the overnight security company for keeping the site safe.

Update: Unauthorised encampment, Castle Grove Nursery in Chobham

While this is not Council land, SHBC officers have visited the location again yesterday and the group of people are still on site. We have engaged with the landowner to encourage them to take action and offered advice.
