Update on Squatters at 39-40 High Street

Read the original article here.

A county court judge has granted Bristol City Council a possession order for the premises at 39-40 High Street, which is currently occupied by squatters. 

Upon request from the occupants of the building, the Council agreed to suspend the possession order until May 26th, giving the occupants a chance to vacate the building before evictions begin. 

The hearing today (May 12th) was originally listed for Thursday, May 6th, but was relisted due to the Council having submitted paperwork incorrectly. 

A small crowd of supporters gathered outside the courthouse, and some were allowed inside the courtroom for the hearing, which lasted approximately 45 minutes.
