Roddons tenant evicted for persistent anti-social behaviour at Wisbech home

A TENANT of Roddons Housing Association has been evicted after being found guilty of persistent anti-social behaviour at his Wisbech home.

Roddons served a notice on 23 Victoria Place, Wisbech, in August 2011 due to persistent reports of loud music, noise and disturbance from visitors.

The tenant, David Francis, was advised that action would not be taken further if he kept to the terms of the Acceptable Behaviour Contract which was entered into.

However, Roddons continued to receive reports of noise nuisance and use of illegal substances, which led to legal proceedings at King’s Lynn Magistrates’ Court. Roddons secured a possession order - and as a result Mr Francis was evicted last Wednesday.

Laura Waite, Roddons’ anti-social behaviour co-ordinator, said: “Eviction is always a last resort but unfortunately it was necessary to protect the community from further alarm and distress.

“I hope that this reassures residents that Roddons is committed to actively tackling anti-social behaviour.

“We’d like to thank residents for their support. This result would not have been possible without them providing the vital evidence required for Roddons to secure a possession order in Court.”
