The Conservative clamp-down on anti-social behaviour within our council properties by anti-social tenants has continued with another possession order being granted at Court.
Complaints about a resident in Wood Street, Nuneaton, which included noise nuisances, threats to staff, verbal abuse to neighbours and damage to property have led to successful action being taken to recover the council property.
Cllr Clare Golby, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Housing, welcomed the news:
I’m pleased that our teams took the action they did in this case.
Some people believe they have a God-given right to behave in any way they want with drugs, noise and anti-social behaviour deeply affecting people in their neighbourhood who just want to live their lives and enjoy their own homes in peace and quiet.
I know this from personal experience it’s a horrible situation to be in and this is why I have supported a radical transformation of the housing team to make dealing with people like Mr Armes swifter and more decisive.
Plus, as he’s effectively made himself homeless, we have no obligation to support him further.
People need to exercise personal responsibility and those who follow the same line of behaviour should look at the long-term outcomes and ask themselves is that what they really want to happen to them?’
