View encampment injunctions
We successfully gained two injunctions banning encampments from moving onto four city parks and recreation grounds until July 2019.
A High Court judge issued the injunctions which cover:
- Perry Park and Alexander Stadium
- Selly Oak Park
- Selly Park Recreation Ground
- Hazelwell Park
The ruling - made by the Honourable Mr Justice Morris sitting in the High Court in Birmingham - came into effect immediately and bans households from setting up or joining encampments any of the above four sites.
In September 2017, the 2nd injunction was varied to add Swanshurst Park to the list of parks covered by the injunction.
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.
Both injunctions ban 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.
