A man has been banned from entering his council house due to his continued anti-social behaviour.

A closure order was obtained by Bury Council following numerous complaints by neighbours to the council, Greater Manchester Police and Six Town Housing.

The man will now have to find alternative accommodation for the next three months because of his actions and those of rowdy visitors to the property in Brighton Street, Bury.

Complaints included: playing loud music late at night; allowing visitors to cause nuisance and annoyance to neighbours; behaving in a threatening and abusive manner; swearing, arguing, fighting and shouting; urinating in the street; and visitors throwing vomit out of the upstairs window.

Magistrates at Manchester and Salford Court agreed that the tenant’s behaviour was having a significant negative impact on neighbours based on evidence gathered by Six Town Housing and granted the Closure Order to provide respite to the community.

A spokesman for Bury Council said: “No one should have to put up with neighbours behaving like this. We hope the closure of this property will make the tenant think about the consequences of his actions and the risk of further penalties if he continues.”
