Yes - and the Wellingborough Police (Sergeant Convery refers). Also Wellingborough Homes. They took over all Council Housing in Wellingborough and surrounding villages some 8/9 years ago. Whilst both my own and the 'baddy' neighbour next door own our own houses, W/Homes are still responsible fot such as footpaths, garage, and other 'public' areas, etc..This prolonged problem/dispute concerns not only the offending foliage 'trespassing' over my property, but also the public footpath immediately outside our resoective properties; this now being (as I understand) the concern of Wellingborough Homes ... amongst others?
Rating: OK, so far ...
Hi, Miss Watts. Thanks for first reply. I keep trying to give the necessary 'Rate' By clicking on the (very faint) levels shown, but seem unable to peoceed further.
PS Sorry, must close for the moment. A poorly wife to look after. Will catch up later. By the way, My telephone number is: 01933-226206, if you want a 1 to 1 conversation. I am in my mid 70s, and these modern, new-fangled machines more often than not confuse and overwhelm me.- which is precisely why I am having difficulty 'rating' you!
They (she) owns own property
Ok - The Police can get what is called a premises closure order
This is where anti social behaviour comes from a property. The Police, with support of the Council apply to the Court proposing to close the property for up to 6 months
If granted, the owner can contest this but any hearing must be within 14 days
At the hearing a Court decides whether to grant the order
If the Police refuse then you can seek an injunction to stop or limit the behaviour
You would likely need a Solicitor to draft an application for an injunction or you could do this by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf
And N16a http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n016a-eng.pdf
The Court would then list the matter for a hearing and decide whether to make an interim order
If the Court does then all well and good.
If the matter is contested the Court will set it down for directions and timetable the case to a full hearing, where the court will decide whether to make a final order
If an interim or final order is made and breached then they can be in contempt of Court.
A Judge can warn, fine or send to prison
But I would suggest you use a Solicitor to draft proceedings and attend a hearing for you
If you win you can ask the Court for costs
But ideally you want the Police to issue a premises closure order
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
