Anti-social Neighbour Faces Hefty Bill…

A noisy neighbour in Stroud has found himself having to pay a hefty price for his actions.

The resident ignored Stroud District Council warnings about causing a nuisance.

As a result Cheltenham magistrates ordered him to pay a fine of £3,500, a victim surcharge of £181 and the council’s full costs of £2,054, a total penalty of £5,735.

Dave Jackson, Environmental Protection Manager at Stroud District Council, said, “This case demonstrates our commitment to using the full legal powers available to us to ensure that residents do not have to tolerate neighbours who refuse to behave in a reasonable manner.

“We are very pleased with this outcome, which amply demonstrates the fact that the courts take these matters seriously.

“We would also call on everyone to please take extra care in these difficult times to fully consider the impact of their activities on others.”
