Since I put in a complaint about noise my neighbour has been

Resolved Question:

since I put in a complaint about noise my neighbour has been parking his car in such a way as to make it difficult to get off my drive, after a period of this we moved our car onto the pavement where he had been doing this, he immediately parked vehicles on the pavement behind us to prevent pedestrian access and block our car. I contacted the police to complain that I felt he was harassing and trying to intimidate me and I felt distressed I had photo's of all the above. The police refuse to look at the photo's and have said there is no case for harassment, intimidation or antis social behaviour is this true

What would you like to know about this please?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
do I have a case for harassment as the police officer will not even look at any evidence he just says he is a police officer and knows the law
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
sorry is there a case for intimidation or antis social behaviour also
Expert:  Jo C. replied 12 months ago.

No, that is not harassment.

That is just parking in an arguably inconsiderate way. That is not making contact either directly or indirectly.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 12 months ago.

It is certainly not anti social behaviour.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 12 months ago.

At the very highest point it is causing an obstruction however you really should be careful about that.

The reaction of the officer would tend to suggest that he is not sympathetic to your position. They do sometimes give people harassment warnings for making allegations of a repeated nature.

thank you, ***** ***** like I will just have to live with it
Expert:  Jo C. replied 12 months ago.

The case of Waxman confirms that.

You don't want to end up with a situation where they have turned on you. The police are really only for really serious issues.

I realise that neighbours are annoying quite often but that doesn't mean they are worthy of the attention of the police.

I'm very sorry but I have to give you truthful information.

Can I clarify anything for you?
