Removal orders have been served on Traveller groups currently in Ramsgate and on Dane Valley Green in Margate.
The group in Margate was among those moved on from the Chine at Ramsgate’s Westcliff on April 3.Some of the group moved to the East Cliff.
Work to clear the Dane Valley site after the last encampment was carried out last month,taking place not long after the authority had finished clearing up from a Summer encampment.
Dane Valley residents are currently petitioning to have a fence installed around the green. Last year residents living by Jackey Bakers fields in Ramsgate also raised a petition to ask for better preventative measures to avoid unauthorised sites on the space.
Thanet council responded with the £15,000 installation of a two metre high fence, bollards that restrict access for vehicles to the public right of way, new gates and CCTV.
A Thanet council spokesperson said: “Thanet District Council attended a hearing at Margate Magistrates’ Court on the morning of Wednesday 10 April. An Order to Remove was granted to the council in relation to the traveller group currently stopping at Dane Valley Green. This order has been served and the group instructed to move off the area.
“There is another traveller group currently based in Ramsgate which has also been served with a court order. Thanet District Council officers will conduct compliance checks at both locations.
“In the event that the order has not been complied with plans will be made for the order to be enforced and removal facilitated.”
The Friends, Families and Travellers charity say local authorities need to provide adequate land for travellers to stop as many families are forced to pull up in public spaces and on private land. This leaves many with interrupted access to basic water and sanitation, education and healthcare.
Thanet currently does not have an authorised site with the nearest being in Aylesham and Dover.
An FFT spokesman previously told The Isle of Thanet News that sites should be made available, saying: “We would recommend that the district council and local authority work with the Traveller community in the area to identify land that would be suitable for building new sites to accommodate these residents.”
