rampART and RAMpart2 evictions

All very gloomy news from the various parts of the rampART. This morning there was a hearing to decide whether there would be an appeal against the granting of the possession order relating to Rampart Street. The judge decided there would be no appeal.

The possession order originally granted for the 3rd of Jan is now active and the owners may now get a warrant to enforce the order and book the bailiffs for an eviction. This could be within two or three weeks although this is just a guess and we'll know more in a day or two.

Meanwhile, a new set of papers was served (kind of) on RAMpart2 and the hearing date is the 3rd of March (ie. next monday). The hearing is both for an IPO and ordinary possession order (which seems a little weird) and assuming they actually bother to turn up this time we seem to have no defense beyond a few technicalities. If they get the IPO then we'd be evicted tuesday 4th March.

A new building is urgently required.
