Council's successful civil injunction granted against ASB tenant

Published on Friday, 22nd July 2016

A woman from Nuneaton has been banned from entering specific properties in Grove Farm area following persistent Anti-Social Behaviour.

Donna Ross, formally of Kingswood Road, Nuneaton has been banned from entering the specific properties in Kingswood Road, Park Lane, Seeswood Close, Church Road and St Paul's Church and is forbidden to engage in any conduct which is causing or likely to cause nuisance or annoyance to anyone living in or visiting these areas.  The Court also ordered Ms Ross to refrain from using threatening, foul and abusive language and intimidating behaviour.

The Injunction was granted after complaints were received from several residents in the area of disturbance caused by persistent loud music, arguing, shouting and intimidating drunken behaviour.  

The case is the Council’s first civil Injunction under the Government’s new Anti-Social Behaviour legislation, which replaced the Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO). 

" Anti Social behaviour causes real problems for local people and I am pleased that we have been able to use the recent legislation to protect against its continuation."

Councillor Julie Jackson, Portfolio Holder for Housing & Communities

"This was a serious case of Anti-Social Behaviour and thanks to the local residents, swift action was able to be taken by the Housing & Communities team.  Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council will not tolerate Anti-Social Behaviour and we will use every power at our disposal to tackle such cases.  If you are experiencing any Anti-Social Behaviour, please contact Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council on 024 7637 6376."

Nicola Topping, Landlord Services Manager

"I would like to thank the residents of Grove Farm for their contribution. This excellent result demonstrates the valuable work that can be achieved when we take a joint approach against those that cause the most harm to our communities. The behaviour of this individual caused significant detrimental effect in the community and will not be tolerated. If you are experiencing any Anti-Social Behaviour, I would encourage the public to report all incidents to Police on 101."

PC Shane Bird, Nuneaton Police Safer Neighbourhood Team

Ms Ross’s Injunction was granted by Nuneaton County Court on 30 June 2016 and lasts for 1 year.
