There has been a further eyeball-to-eyeball confrontation this afternoon between the gipsies who are illegally camped on the Cliff Walk parking ground – and the authorities.
Vale of Glamorgan Council officials – supported by Penarth police officers – today visited the territory occupied by the luxury caravans which have been camped on the site since Sunday.
With the police keeping an overview of the situation from the high cab of their large van, council officials proceeded to issue a formal communication to people in the illegal encampment – by letter.
The council officials posted-up several copies of an official council warning letter addressed to “persons unknown” [ a.k.a. the gipsies] written by Ceri Burnett, Operational Manager Legal Services .
The letter read “I have been instructed to give you notice to leave the area known as the Cliff Walk Car Park in the Vale of Glamorgan and surrounding area by 6pm on Tuesday 10th April 2018”
The letter went on to say “The Vale of Glamorgan Council cannot ‘tolerate’ [sic] an encampment at this location because it is a very busy car park used in conjunction with the tourist area of Penarth”.
The letter goes on to tell the ‘persons unknown’ “If you do not leave the land by 6pm on Tuesday April 10th, [ it was already the afternoon of Wednesday April 11th] the Vale of Glamorgan Council will commence court proceedings to ensure your removal from the land. The cost of which proceedings will be sought against you” .
