An injunction order has been granted on a property in the Coed Mawr area of Bangor, banning an individual from entering the Cil Coed and Pen-Y-Wern areas on the estate.

Following a number of complaints about anti-social behaviour including noise nuisance and verbal abuse, Cartrefi Cymunedol Gwynedd (CCG) housing association decided to take legal action to protect residents form further anti-social and disruptive behaviour.

Alan Davies, Neighbourhood Services Officer at CCG said: “We have worked closely with our residents to secure this injunction and we are extremely pleased with the outcome of this case. Our tenants at Coed Mawr can now hopefully enjoy peace and quiet, without worrying or feeling scared in their own homes.

“Anti-social behaviour can impact greatly on the lives of tenants and local residents, and when complaints are made, we take them very seriously. This case shows that we will take appropriate action to help resolve issues that are brought to our attention.”

One of the witnesses in the case stated: “People shouldn’t have to feel uncomfortable and intimidated in their own home. We are more than happy with the help and support we have received from CCG staff and the situation is now much better. I would encourage other tenants, or people who live in private accommodation and are suffering anti-social behaviour on a CCG estate to contact CCG and report the problem – they were so supportive.”

The case was supported by North Wales Police and the injunction order will remain in force until further order of the court, any breach of the injunction will result in the individual being arrested.
