Nuisance neighbour evicted

York city council

9:49am 9th November 2011

City of York Council’s Tenancy Enforcement Team has taken steps to evict a council tenant, after she caused years of nuisance to her neighbours.

The council is acting on an eviction warrant today (9 November) to remove a tenant from a social housing property managed by City of York Council in Wood Street.

A possession order was obtained by the council in respect of 20 Wood Street, York, occupied by Miss Colette Ogden, following a hearing at York County Court on 29 September 2011. As a result of this order, Miss Ogden is due to be evicted from the property today, Wednesday 9 November.

Miss Colette Ogden (aged 22) began her tenancy in May 2008. Neighbours began to experience problems in late 2009 when her brothers and her partner began living with her.  Complaints included noise from regular parties, often continuing through the night, with neighbours being disturbed and intimidated by the regular visitors coming and going from the property.

Steve Waddington, assistant director of Housing and Public protection at City of York Council, said:

“It is unacceptable for council tenants to intimidate or harass their neighbours. No-one in York should have to endure persistent noise nuisance, so this is an excellent result from the council’s Tenancy Enforcement Team (TET).”

“As a landlord, the council has a duty to protect the safety and well being of other residents in the area. This case demonstrates that the council will not tolerate this behaviour and will take action to put an end to nuisance tenants.”

If council tenants are experiencing noise related problems with their neighbours they can contact their local estate manager on 01904 551200.
