Tenant Evicted For Anti-Social Behaviour In Stapleford

Tenant Evicted For Anti-Social Behaviour In Stapleford

A Stapleford woman was evicted from her Council property last week after repeated Anti-Social Behaviour being perpetrated against residents of Stapleford.

A Possession Order was made against Jeanette Brookes Moore, of Cliff Hill Avenue, by District Judge Wylie QC at Nottingham County Court following being satisfied that the tenant was guilty and had been convicted of breaching the conditions of a Criminal Behaviour Order that had been obtained against her by Nottinghamshire Police. 

The incidents of anti-social behaviour that she was found to have been guilty of included that she had been shouting abuse and swearing whilst in the locality of her home whilst members of the public and children were present and that she caused harassment, alarm and distress to another neighbour by shouting.  

Chairman of the Housing Committee, Councillor Eric Kerry said: “The residents of Stapleford and those in and around the Cliff Hill Avenue area have suffered for long enough because of this unacceptable behaviour which led to the Council taking this strong and decisive action”.

“The Council works closely with residents and its partners, such as the Police, to ensure that we protect our residents so they can live safely in the Borough, as part of its commitment to not tolerating anti-social behaviour.”

“All possible efforts to tackle the anti-social behaviour were taken by Nottinghamshire Police and the Council, but despite those interventions the anti-social behaviour continued, so the decision was taken to apply for Criminal Behaviour Order, and ultimately Possession of the property.”

A police spokesperson said: “As this case shows, we work closely with our partners and where appropriate we will use powers available to us to tackle anti-social behaviour and to improve the quality of life of residents.   “We’ve visited this address numerous times following complaints from residents and we hope the positive action that has been taken sends out the message that we will not tolerate this kind of unacceptable behaviour.”

Following the breach of certain Court Orders relating to Anti-Social Behaviour, such as a Criminal Behaviour Order, the Council as a Landlord can apply for Possession on an “Absolute Ground” in accordance with Condition 3 of Section 84A(5) of the Housing Act 1985.
