A static home which was installed illegally on the cliff top at Westgate at the end of last May has finally been removed.
The mobile home was put on land, known as ‘The Gardens’, next to Westgate Pavilion.
In September 2022 Thanet District Council applied for an Injunction to remove the mobile home.
At the following court hearing in February defendant Sheena Daniels claimed to have purchased the land and claimed she would provide proof of ownership. The land is owned by Thanet council.
Deputy District Judge Plant, at Canterbury County Court, ruled the mobile home must be removed and the defendant was ordered to pay Thanet District Council’s costs of £4,333.26.
The defendant’s claim they had legally purchased the land was dismissed by the court and Ms Daniels was ordered to have the static home removed within 56 days of the hearing – by Thursday 20 April.
The static was removed today (April 14).
