Over the last 18 months Rykneld Homes has worked with Derbyshire Police, partner agencies and the local community to try and resolve a complaint of ASB.
This was being caused by a resident who was threatening and racially abusive towards other residents living in the locality.
Emma O’Connor, 38, Calow was found guilty at Chesterfield Magistrates Court of causing deliberate Anti Social Behaviour and received a suspended custodial sentence.
The offences were committed at the property between August 2015 and October 2016, until O’Connor was bailed away from the area pending the Court trial date.
Rykneld Homes had worked extensively with all parties to try and resolve this complaint by offering mediation, housing support and alternative housing options. Rykneld Homes also took into account the multiple and complex personal difficulties of the perpetrator when deciding how to deal with the breach of their Tenancy Agreement.
This has been a complex and sensitive case where the outcome for the victims is a positive result. Rykneld Homes is now seeking outright possession of the property using the new ASB Crime and Policing Act 2014 ‘Absolute Grounds’.
