South Staffordshire Housing Association (SSHA) has successfully sought Anti Social Behaviour Injunctions against two local men.
The injunctions are in place to prevent the men from returning to Wombourne village following a breach of their tenancy agreements due to their behaviour or the behaviour of their families.
The authorities were concerned that the men, named as Adrian Taylor (44) and Michael Gill (46) both from Giggetty Estate Wombourne, would continue to affect the village with their anti-social behaviour making life difficult for the local community and so took the steps to enforce an injunction which would prevent them from returning to the area.
Working with Staffordshire Police, SSHA took action to protect the community as Adrian Eggington, director of neighbourhood services at SSHA explains; “We have been working closely with partner organisations such as the Police to make Wombourne and particularly Giggetty Estate a safer and happier place to live and work. This includes taking a zero-tolerance approach to individuals who disrupt the local community. With this in mind we took stringent action against these two men and hope the community will back us by reporting these individuals to the Police should they break the conditions of their injunction.”
Inspector Andy Chapman of Staffordshire Police adds; “We are pleased that Birmingham County Court granted the injunctions against these men. Disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated and we will continue to work with partners to ensure that estates like Giggetty continue to be great places to live.”
The conditions of the injunction are such that the individuals can not enter Wombourne village, can not use or threaten to use violence against any person living in or visiting this area and can not damage or threaten to damage property in this area. Following the successful injunction proceedings SSHA have leafleted the entire Giggetty Estate to advise residents what to do should they spot the individuals breaking their injunction conditions.
Should you spot Adrian Taylor or Michael Gill breaking the conditions of their injunction please contact Staffordshire Police on 0300 123 4455 or 999 in an emergency.
