Injunction To Stop Anti-Social Behaviour At A Retirement Living Complex In Beeston

Injunction To Stop Anti-Social Behaviour At A Retirement Living Complex In Beeston

15/10/18 - A BEESTON WOMAN has been served with a Civil Injunction to prevent Anti-Social Behaviour being caused to residents of Beeston.

An Injunction was made against Nicola Grubb, 45, no fixed abode but residing at Humber Lodge, Humber Road, Beeston, by District Judge Wylie at Nottingham County Court following being satisfied that Ms Grubb had caused nuisance and annoyance to local residents. 

The incidents of anti-social behaviour have included common assault, offering sexual services in return for money, shouting, swearing, violence, verbal abuse and threatening behaviour.

The Injunction prohibited Ms Grubb from entering Humber Lodge or its curtilage (and any other retirement living complex within Beeston) and also from assaulting, threatening and/or causing nuisance, harassment, alarm or distress to any tenant or other person with a lawful right to be there.

Ms Grubb breached the Injunction on the 11th October 2018 and was arrested.  At a hearing at Nottingham County Court on the 12th October 2018, His Honour Judge Godsmark QC ordered that Ms Grubb be committed to prison for contempt for 14 days, such order to be suspended providing she complies with the terms of the Injunction for the rest of its duration.

Chair of the Housing Committee, Eric Kerry said: “The residents of Beeston and those in Humber Lodge particularly, many of whom are elderly and vulnerable, have suffered for long enough because of this unacceptable behaviour which has led to the Council taking this action to protect residents in the local community”.

“The Council works closely with 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.”

Breaches of Civil Injunctions are taken very seriously and dealt with quickly.  The Court has power to impose prison sentences of up to two years or an unlimited fine in accordance with Section 14 of the Contempt of Court Act 1981
