Government to 'help halt court actions' on home repossessions
A housing association's legal action has led to a couple who caused persistent anti-social behaviour for over two years being handed injunctions.
Susan Coakley from Northgate Drive in Chorley and her partner Michael Wright are alleged to have engaged in noisy arguments on the street, played loud music, shouted and sworn at other residents, and racially abused a neighbour.
White has now been banned from the area for two years following the legal action by Chorley Community Housing (CCH).
Coakley was repeatedly warned about legal action if she allowed the behaviour to continue.
However, she continued to cause noise nuisance from within her property and to verbally abuse her neighbour.
The neighbour reported the problems to CCH and after being threatened agreed to allow CCH to use her evidence as the basis for the court action.
Tenancy enforcement officer Anna Schickhoff-Brown said: “This is a really good result, as this problem has been going on for some time and neighbours were afraid to speak up. It only took one person to be willing to give a statement to help push the case to court. I’ve now been able to let other residents know about the injunctions, which will hopefully reassure them that we are dealing with the anti-social behaviour."
