A RESIDENT who received an injunction for antisocial behaviour (ASB) after threatening a neighbouring family is also responsible for us applying for a Demotion Order against his mother due to his actions.
The 24-year-old resident - who lives in Widford, Chelmsford - faces a fine, and possibly a custodial sentence, if he breaks the terms of the injunction.
Our Quality of Life (QoL) team worked swiftly to obtain the injunction, which was awarded by Chelmsford County Court within 24-hours of submitting the application.
The injunction - which has the power of arrest attached - prohibits the resident from using foul language and making threats against his neighbour(s). If the resident breaches the injunction he will be arrested and taken to court for sentencing.
We will also be seeking to demote the tenancy of the resident’s mother, as she signed the tenancy and is responsible for the actions and behaviour of any friends, relatives and guests which visit her home.
Jon Cowie, Tenancy Services team leader, said: “We take all issues of ASB extremely seriously as we believe everyone has the right to enjoy peace and quiet in their home and community.
“Because of this we will always act swiftly to obtain an ASB injunction as it is an extremely useful in providing ASB victims with the protection they require.”
