A Doncaster tenant who installed CCTV cameras
claiming neighbours were making his life a misery says he is being threatened with eviction.

Chris Golding installed the system four years ago, after a spate of rows about parking outside his home in Coronation Gardens, Warmsworth.

However, the St Leger Homes tenant says he is now being threatened with eviction as he did not apply for permission to install the camera.

He said: “I can’t understand it.

“The camera has been up for four years and it’s only now I get a letter threatening me with eviction.

“Ever since we moved here there have been problems with parking and we have had incidents of our cars being vandalised, so we need the camera for security.

“People on this street have made our lives a misery and now we are the ones being told we might be evicted, it’s not right.”

Mr Golding, aged 70, says he has since applied for permission for the camera, but has been refused by St Leger Homes and told he faces eviction if he fails to remove it.

Susan Jordan, chief executive of St Leger Homes, said: “We take all customer comments very seriously, which is why a senior member of our team has met with Mr Golding to discuss the issues he has raised.

“We aim to continue working with him to find a resolution and have advised him our aim is to resolve this amicably.”

St Leger Homes manages Doncaster Council’s 21,000 homes on behalf of the authority.
