View encampment injunctions
We successfully gained an extension to existing injunctions banning encampments from moving onto seven city parks and recreation grounds and one city street until July 2021. The ruling - made by His Honour Judge Rawlings sitting in the High Court in Birmingham - came into effect immediately and bans households from setting up or joining encampments on any of the following sites.
- Selly Oak Park
- Selly Park Recreation Ground
- Hazelwell Park
- Swanshurst Park
- Sarehole Mill; including Sarehole Recreation Ground
- Chinn Brook Recreation Ground
- The Dell off Manningford Road
- Icknield Street
Anyone who breaches the orders covering these parks and recreation grounds may be arrested, will be guilty of contempt of court and may be fined, have their assets seized or face imprisonment.
The injunction bans people from entering or remaining on any part of the parks and recreation grounds covered by the injunctions to establish, join or be part of an encampment.
A further similar injunction was granted by His Honour Judge Rawlings covering Perry Park and Alexander Stadium, again until July 2021.
An additional injunction has been granted by His Honour Judge McKenna also in the High Court for the road off Lea Ford Way which is a public highway and serves a number of businesses. This remains in force until 22 March 2020.
