Tamworth woman evicted from home after terrorising residents

A woman has been evicted from her home for anti-social actions which saw residents ‘wellbeing at risk’. Tamworth Borough Council, working in partnership with Tamworth Police, issued an eviction order against a woman living in Gresley, yesterday, Wednesday, May 15, after subjecting the local community to long-standing anti-social behaviour.

Police successfully issued a three-year Criminal Behaviour Order in August 2023 to the woman for making false reports to emergency services, causing harassment, alarm or distress and assault. Police found that order to have been breached three times.

Despite support and multiple opportunities to turn her life around, the woman has continued her chaotic lifestyle, causing a huge impact on the surrounding neighbours and wider community.

Tamworth Borough Council says it was left with no choice but to enact powers under the Antisocial Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 under ‘mandatory’ grounds and take possession of the property.

A spokesman said: “This is a very serious case, causing considerable alarm and distress to neighbours and the wider community. Anti-social behaviour is a crime, and whilst Tamworth Borough Council supports early intervention in such cases, attempts from all partners proved to be unsuccessful in supporting the individual to change their behaviour, which is why this action is necessary”.

Stephen Gabriel, chief executive of Tamworth Borough Council, said: “Anti-social behaviour is a serious crime, blighting the lives of those impacted. Working in partnership with Tamworth Police in this case has meant we’ve been able to use specific powers to achieve an eviction.

“We’ve exhausted all avenues of help and support and have used our powers as a last resort; we prefer to work with perpetrators and communities to resolve issues first. However, we cannot stand by while local people were continually subjected to behaviour that puts others’ wellbeing at risk.
