A disruptive builder and a noisy neighbour have been convicted and fined after breaching community protection notices issued by Lambeth council officers.
Residents of Heyford Terrace, Clapham complained of noise and anti-social behaviour being caused by a builder working on one of the houses in the road.
This included loud drilling and construction work in the evenings and on Sundays, as well as machinery blocking the foot path and building waist being deposited on the highway.
Council officers issued a community protection notice under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 to the builder. He then breached this notice and was prosecuted, said a council statement.
At Camberwell Green magistrates court on May 16 the builder pleaded guilty to eight breaches of the community protection notice, was fined £400 for each breach and ordered to pay costs of £1095.
Lesley Brown – In Bromfelde Road, Stockwell people had been complaining of loud music being played by one of the residents.
Officers issued a community protection notice under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 but complaints from residents continued to be received and the offender was prosecuted for breaching the community protection notice.
The offender pleaded guilty to two breaches of the notice, was fined £100 for each breach and ordered to pay £100 costs, at Camberwell Green magistrates court on May 4.
A Community Protection Notice is aimed to prevent unreasonable behaviour that is having a negative impact on the local community’s quality of life. Any person aged 16 years or over can be issued with a notice, whether it is an individual or a business, and it will require the behaviour to stop and if necessary reasonable steps to be taken to ensure it is not repeated in the future.
