Milford Haven council tenant evicted over damage and threats

A council tenant in Milton Crescent, Milford Haven, has been evicted from her home for causing a nuisance from her property.
The tenant had caused damage to the property as well as causing a nuisance to her neighbours by her thoughtless behaviour.
The woman was evicted following lengthy contested court proceedings and following threats and abuse made by the tenant towards neighbours in the area.
It was also necessary for Pembrokeshire County Council to obtain an injunction with the power of arrest in order to protect the neighbours.
The Authority worked closely with a number of partners - including police - to achieve the outcome.
The County Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor David Simpson, said he hoped the eviction sent a clear message to tenants.
He went on: “This demonstrates that the Council will respond when tenants in Council properties cause a nuisance to other residents.
“The Council will use all powers available, including eviction proceedings, to stop problems of anti-social behaviour and neighbour nuisance.
I would like to praise staff from all agencies involved for their dedication in getting this case to court and achieving the best possible outcome for the neighbouring residents.”
