Great - I think - not so sure about the second bit - i.e. if the plot is simply land it cannot be calssified as 'premises', this much I get, but are you saying that if it is just land and someone has an intention at some future date to 'improve it' by adding a building then it can be classified as 'premises' even though no building currently exists?NB in this instance no building currently exists, nor is there any intention to build on the land
Sorry to be a pain, but the point is crucial not clear regarding 'intention to develop' and 'premises'. I know the travellers are illegally encamping, but the wider question is have they breached the TRO to gain access to the site in motorised vehicles. Motorised vehicles are not allowed except to access 'premises' under the TRO, so regarding this intention to develop angle (which clearly the travellers would have a mind to do if they could - i.e. get the hard standing down and retrospectively apply for planning permission etc) if the land is simply land with no buildings currently, no improvement in respect of adding buildings underway and no intention to develop the site by the current owners can it, or can it not, be classified as 'premises'?
Many thanks :-)
