Noisy neighbour kicked out by Durham housing bosses

Have your say

HOUSING staff have issued a warning that antisocial behaviour will not be tolerated after a tenant was evicted from her home.

A 19-year-old, who has not been named, was evicted from her council house in the Gilesgate area of Durham City after repeated instances of problem behaviour, which disrupted other residents.

Tenancy enforcement staff at Durham City Homes received several complaints about groups of people gathering at the house and causing misery for neighbours.

Loud music was played and there was shouting and fighting.

Despite numerous written warnings, and visits from police and council staff, the problems continued.

Simon Bartlett, Durham City Homes manager said: “Behaviour of this nature is a clear breach of the council’s tenancy agreement, and will not be tolerated.”
