my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Is it on private or public land when he protests please?
He stands on the pavement at the edge of our property
Your only chance really if the Police wont do anything is potentially seek a civil injunction .
Of course it depends on whether a Court views this as harassment.
One has a right to protest of course, as we are a democracy.
But it may be worth getting a Solicitor to write a letter and ask him to stop.
Or say you will seek a Court order.
If he refuses then you could issue proceedings.
You would need to complete form N1
The Court would send a copy to the other side and list the matter first hearing.
A Court would decide if the matter was contested and if so set the matter down trial, with a Judge deciding whether to grant an interim order.
But I would suggest a Solicitor letter to start with.
can you recommend a solicitor or shuld I use a local firm? roughly how much do you think it should cost?
the term harassment is used to cover the 'causing alarm or distress' offences under section 2 of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 as amended (PHA), and 'putting people in fear of violence' offences under section 4 of the PHA.
I think a letter would cost £250
