Endeavour Housing Association has successfully secured an Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction against a woman residing in one of their properties. Anne Marie Handisides, the wife of an Endeavour tenant, has persistently and aggressively engaged in threatening and abusive behaviour towards fellow residents in the Laburnum Street area of Hartlepool.
The injunction was awarded to Endeavour Housing Association after they received complaints from residents that Mrs Handisides had been threatening to cause serious acts of violence and criminal damage to property.
The Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction placed on Mrs Handisides forbids her from engaging or threatening to engage in behaviour which is capable of causing nuisance or annoyance to the residents of Laburnum Street.
If Mrs Handisides fails to obey the order, she will be arrested and if found guilty, could be punished by up to two years imprisonment.
Sara Herrington, Housing Services Manager at Endeavour Housing says,
“Endeavour Housing Association does not tolerate the kind of behaviour that causes nuisance to other neighbours and although we offer support to all perpetrators of anti-social behaviour to help them moderate their behaviour, in this case Mrs Handisides refused to work with us. Her behaviour did not improve and we are therefore committed to taking firm action in order to protect the residents of Laburnum Street. We will continue to work with partner agencies including the police in order to clamp down on this type of behaviour.”
