Mother and daughter make promise in court to behave


Published by lpriest for Progress Housing Group in Housing and also in Communities

A New Progress Housing Association tenant and her daughter have agreed to stop making their neighbours' lives a misery.

Jackie Hall,56, and her daughter Chantelle Hall, 21, from Preston, Lancashire both agreed to an Undertaking at Preston County Court on Friday 14 February not to cause a nuisance, harass, use violence or behave in a threatening manner to anyone living on or visiting the Kingsfold estate.

An Undertaking is a promise given to the court to behave. Jackie and Chantelle Hall promised not to breach the Undertaking for two years until February 2016, as any breach would be considered as contempt of court and could lead to them both receiving prison sentences.

New Progress Housing Association took action after residents from the estate had made complaints about Jackie and her daughter’s behaviour, which included nuisance, harassment, and distress.

This successful outcome was as a result of partnership working between New Progress Housing Association’s Tenancy Enforcement team and the Penwortham Neighbourhood Policing team.

Gary Melia, Operations Director of Housing, Community and Support Services at Progress Housing Group, said: "We will continue to work closely with the Penwortham Neighbourhood policing team to make the Kingsfold Estate a safer place to live, work and socialise. Jackie Hall and her daughter Chantelle’s promise to behave on the Kingsfold estate will contribute significantly to achieving this.”
