A 20 year old man who caused misery for residents on an estate in Leyland has been given an Anti Social Behaviour Injunction Order for two years, after New Progress Housing Association took civil action in Preston County Court.
Alexander Briggs from Golden Hill Lane, Leyland is notorious in the Broadfield area and much of Leyland town centre for causing criminal damage to New Progress Housing Association property, as well as harassing local residents.
Alexander Briggs has been excluded from the Broadfield estate and the shopping area of Churchill Way, Hough Lane and Chapel Brow in Leyland for two years; if he enters these areas he can be arrested and sent to prison for breach of his anti social behaviour injunction order.
At Preston County Court, District Judge Knifton ordered that the injunction order awarded to Alexander Briggs remain in place until 7 January, 2013.
Bernie Keenan, Managing Director at New Progress Housing Group Association, said: This case should help reassure local residents that we continue to work hard with our partners to secure legal action against the perpetrators of anti-social behaviour within the areas in which we operate; and that we will take necessary action to enforce any breaches of that legal action.”
New Progress Housing Association staff will be working with the local neighbourhood policing team to distribute leaflets to residents in the Broadfield and Leyland town centre informing them of the actions taken against Alexander Briggs, and giving them a dedicated telephone number which the should call if they see or hear of any anti-social behaviour taking place in their area.
