‘NUMEROUS complaints’ over the state and produce on sale at the L’Ancresse hedge veg stalls has seen the owners served with an eviction notice – a move described as ‘long overdue’ by some parishioners.
The sale of wholesale-bought vegetables, second-hand crockery and abandoned stalls has led to the Development & Planning Authority taking enforcement action against its owners and contributors.
Yesterday was the final day of the voluntary notice served against it. However, products remained on sale while many stands have been left abandoned at the site.
A statement from Planning Services said the stalls and any remaining produce would be removed if the order was not complied with.
‘We have received numerous complaints from members of the public and other authorities regarding the stalls on this land, said a spokesman for the service.
‘Most are vacant and unused while others do not qualify as “hedge veg” stalls, selling crockery and other goods imported to the site.’
