Woman remanded in custody after breaching Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction


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

A 56 year old woman from St Annes, Lancashire who was handed an Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction for causing distress to her neighbours, was once again remanded in custody after allegedly breaching it.  The Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction was granted to New Fylde Housing in May 2013.

Gillian Cardo of St George Avenue, St Annes will now appear in court in March, after New Fylde Housing (part of Progress Housing Group) received numerous complaints from neighbours alleging that Cardo had alarmed and distressed them by continuing to enter their homes uninvited in a drunken state, after she had already received an Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction from the housing association for this type of behaviour.

Bernie Keenan, Executive Director of Housing, Community and Support Services at Progress Housing Group said: “After giving Ms Cardo numerous opportunities to change her poor behaviour, we had no choice but to bring the complaints of the alleged anti-social behaviour to the attention of Blackpool County Court for their consideration. We hope that by taking Mrs Cardo to court she will cease her disruptive and alarming behaviour and enable our tenants to live in their homes safely and peacefully.” 

This outcome was as a result of excellent partnership working between Progress Housing’s Tenancy Enforcement Team and the St Annes Neighbourhood Policing team.
