A 33 year old man and a 23 year old woman who caused misery for residents on an estate in Penwortham have both been given an Anti Social Behaviour Injunction for two years, after New Progress Housing Association took civil action in Preston County Court.
The Housing Association, working in partnership with the Penwortham Neighbourhood Policing Team, sought the injunction after reports from residents of abusive and threatening disturbances.
Gary Melia, Deputy 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 take 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.”
The Injunction against Collier and Sumner forbids them from:
- Using threatening or violent behaviour
- Engaging in lawful activity
If Collier or Sumner are seen breaking the terms of their Injunction within the Kingsfold estate they will risk arrest and a prison sentence.
New Progress Housing Association staff will be working with the local neighbourhood policing team to distribute leaflets to residents in the Kingsfold estate informing them of the actions taken against Lee Collier and Danielle Sumner. Residents are encouraged to phone New Progress Housing Association on 01772 450600 if they see or hear of any anti-social behaviour taking place in their area.
