Newton Mearns resident given Interim Anti-Social Behaviour Order
Interim Order granted by Paisley Sheriff Court.
A Newton Mearns resident has been issued with an Interim Antisocial Behaviour Order that bans him from acting in an antisocial manner in and around his home.
An Interim Anti-Social Behaviour Order was granted by Paisley Sheriff Court on 31 July 2017 against Kevin Crossan of Newton Mearns, following an application by Link Housing Association.
Link pursued the court action following complaints from local residents about his conduct in and around the estate.
The general terms of the Interim Order prohibit Mr Crossan from entering Hillfield Drive or Hillfield Brae, Newton Mearns; shouting, swearing, assaulting or threatening to assault any person in the locality; or behaving in an intimidating or threatening manner towards any persons in the locality; or behaving in any other manner designed to cause or which is likely to cause alarm, distress, nuisance or annoyance to anyone in the locality.
The Interim Order will remain in force until a further hearing is held to determine whether a full Anti-Social Behaviour Order is appropriate.
June Green, Director of Housing, said:
“Link always takes complaints about anti-social behaviour very seriously. The conduct of this individual resulted in a number of complaints being made to Link by local residents.
“We worked closely with Police Scotland to ensure an effective response to these complaints. We will not hesitate in pursuing legal action to ensure that residents are not subjected to behaviour that causes them alarm and distress.”
