A couple who caused persistent anti-social behaviour for over two years have been issued with injunction orders .
Preston County Court heard that Susan Coakley from Northgate Drive in Chorley and her partner Michael Wright. engaged in noisy arguments on the street, played loud music, shouted and swore at other residents, and racially abused a neighbour.
White has been banned from the area for two years following the legal action by Chorley Community Housing (CCH), and given the two year injunction order.
Coakley, who was repeatedly warned about legal action if she allowed the anti-social behaviour to continue, has been given the same injunction order, which will mean a prison sentence if breached.
CCH tenancy enforcement officer Anna Schickhoff-Brown said: “This is a really good result, as this problem has been going on for some time and neighbours were afraid to speak up.
“It only took one person to be willing to give a statement to help push the case to court.
“I’ve now been able to let other residents know about the injunctions, which will hopefully reassure them that we are dealing with the anti-social behaviour”.
Neither Coakley or Wright attended court when their cases were heard and two year injunction orders were made against them.
The orders are in place until May 2015.
