New Progress Housing Association has won a possession order against a tenant as a result of on going anti-social behaviour
Preston County Court ruled in favor of New Progress Housing Association against tenant Emma Just, 31, of Princess Street, Lostock Hall after finding her guilty of causing distress and alarm to residents and visitors of Princess Street at all times of the day and night.
District Judge Rouine granted New Progress Housing Association a Suspended Possession Order for five years against Ms Just, extending her previous possession order which she received in 2007 for alcohol fuelled anti-social behaviour.
In Court District Judge Rouine accepted that Ms Just had made a promise to the court that she will behave herself in the future and granted New Progress an Undertaking for 12 months and extending the Possession Order against her until November 2017.
District Judge Rouine explain to Ms Just that the court would take a dim view of any broken promise and that it would be seen as being in contempt of court for which she could be sent to prison.
Gary Melia, Deputy Managing Director of New Progress Housing Association said: “This case should help reassure local residents that we are working hard with our partners to secure court action against perpetrators of anti-social behavior; and that we will also seek to enforce any breaches of those orders.”
“We believe that everyone has a right to live peacefully and feel safe in their own home.”
