A PUBLIC inquiry is to take place in April to determine the outcome of an appeal by gypsies currently occupying a site at Little Hallingbury.
The appeal is against an enforcement notice served, along with an injunction, to Terence Jones and others by Uttlesford District Council shortly after they began moving onto the site at the beginning of October 2009.
Between then and now, the council has worked hard to pursue this matter through the legal system, with several hearings taking place in courts in Essex and Cambridgeshire.
These have been adjourned for technical reasons or to allow Mr Jones and others more time to seek legal advice and mount a defence.

The most recent hearing, which was scheduled for February 11, was adjourned due to the upcoming inquiry, which will be conducted by the Planning Inspectorate.
The inquiry will take place on April 27 and 28, in the district council's offices in London Road, Saffron Walden.
