A Retford man has been given an Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction to prevent him from entering an A1 Housing managed property.

James Brown, 57, of no fixed abode was handed the ASBI by District Judge Wall at Mansfield County Court on 2 May 2017, following an application by Bassetlaw District Council.

Gerald Connor, Community Safety Co-ordinator at Bassetlaw District Council, said: “Mr Brown has previously been banned from entering this area of Retford and despite further warnings, keeps returning to this facility to the objection of a number of residents. This Injunction will prevent Mr Brown from visiting this property and I hope this will enable residents to feel safer in their homes.”

The terms of the Injunction, imposed on May 2, 2017 and granted under Part 1 of the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014, means that Mr Brown, whether by himself or by instructing or encouraging or allowing any other persons, be forbidden from:

(a)  Engage in conduct which is capable of causing a harassment, alarm or distress to any person attending or residing at a named Retford address.

(b)  The Respondent be forbidden from entering or remaining upon land between Firth Road, Boundary Walk and Galway Crescent.

(c)  Approach directly or indirectly five named individuals

The order is to remain in force until 31 January 2018 or further order of the court.
