TRAVELLERS have been served with a ’direction to leave’ notice after setting up camp in a Basildon industrial estate.
A number of mobile homes arrived in Endeavour Drive, close to the Festival Leisure Park, earlier this week.
Essex Council owns the land and said it had asked the travellers to move on.
Tory councillor Simon Walsh, cabinet member for environment, said: “We are aware that a group of travellers have arrived at Endeavour Drive. We have served them with a Direction to Leave notice and expect them to move on in the coming days.”
