North Somerset Council is heading to court next week in a bid to evict travellers from Weston's Ashcombe Park.
The council had requested the travellers leave by 5pm on Wednesday, but the group remains camped in the park – leading North Somerset to apply for a court order to evict the travellers.
The council confirmed it will head to North Somerset Courthouse on Monday at 11am to make its case against the travellers – and hopes to evict them later that day.
The travellers set up their caravans in the park on Monday, and the group ‘failed to comply’ with the council’s request to vacate the park.
A spokesman said: “We have served a summons to the travellers, and we will present our case to magistrates on Monday.
“We hope to be engaging bailiffs the same day.”
