The High Court has ruled that a full court hearing of a case between Irish travellers and Basildon Borough Council will take place next week.
The hearing will decide whether enforcement notices issued by the council ordering the removal of security fencing
, walls and mobile homes were correctly drawn up.
According to lawyers for the Dale Farm Travellers, the council does not have the right to remove security fencing and chalets on the caravan site because they are too big to be considered as caravans under legislation used by the council as the basis for the eviction.
After the ruling on Monday, a Dale Farm resident said she feels that the travellers' points of view are at least being listened to.
"One thing is certain: we will all stand together," she said. "Either we all go or none of us go, we will not let the council divide us."
Basildon Council has been engaged in a ten-year battle to clear some 51 illegal plots on the site.
