Council orders Earnley caravans to move


Chichester District Council has issued a notice ordering a resident to remove caravans from a piece of land in Earnley.

The district council has issued an enforcement notice to Shirley Valley, claiming a ‘breach of planning control had occurred within the last ten years’ on land to the north of Marsh Farm Barns in Drove Lane.

The council has ordered Ms Valley to remove a number of caravans from the land, which it claimed were ‘detrimental to the rural character and appearance of the area’, as well as storage sheds, gas bottles and the access track.

Ms Valley has appealed against the notice.
