Stockport Homes have successfully gained possession of a property on Friston Close, Cheadle Hulme as a result of persistent and chronic antisocial behaviour from the occupants.
Ms Zoey Jackson had been causing on going serious nuisance and disorder on Friston Close and neighbouring streets such as Willow Avenue. Residents living nearby were subjected to, fighting and screaming in the street, threats and verbal abuse as well as damage to property.
Stockport Homes, Stockport Council and Greater Manchester Police tried numerous interventions and measures to control the behaviour of Ms Zoey Jackson and her household members including two injunctions being issued to Ms Jackson herself and one to her partner. But the problems persisted.
Stockport Homes had no alternative but to take action to reclaim Ms Jackson’s tenancy. Stockport Homes worked closely with Greater Manchester police and local residents to secure enough evidence to take proceedings to the County Court.
At the Court hearing the District Judge deemed that it was reasonable to grant possession of the property back to Stockport Homes. Ms Jackson and her family have been given advice by Stockport Homes with regard to seeking alternative accommodation.
The work carried out by Stockport Homes, Stockport Council and Greater Manchester Police has demonstrated the commitment of the Safer Stockport Partnership in tackling nuisance.
Robin Burman, Chair of the Board, Stockport Homes said
Stockport Homes believe that people have the right to live in safe neighbourhoods, and we will not tolerate nuisance behaviour that impacts on the wider community.
