The illegal use of a former cattle farm in Fifield as a vehicle sales business has been halted - after the Royal Borough won a final injunction to stop it.

The injunction against the unauthorised use of Coningsby Farm in Coningsby Lane was granted following a court case heard at Luton Crown Court on Wednesday.

The council's planning enforcement team successfully obtained the final injunction order against Frankham (Coningsby) Limited, John James Frankham, Fifield Automotives and Aman Ali in respect of the unauthorised use of Coningsby Farm for the display and sale of vehicles following six months of disturbance to residents in the Fifield Green area in Maidenhead.

The defendants have 21 days to comply with the terms of the injunction and steps have already been taken to remove Fifield Automotives from the land.

Councillor David Coppinger, lead member for planning on the council said: “I am delighted with the result that the planning enforcement team have secured.

"They have worked hard with residents who have suffered from the activities relating to the use of this unauthorised site over the past six months.

“Residents don’t often see all the work that has to go on behind the scenes but all the effort has proven worthwhile."
