Final warning for noisy tenant

Have your say

A MAN who caused so much noise a court heard he was putting his neighbours’ health at risk has been warned he faces eviction if he breaches the terms of his tenancy again.

Sheffield County Court was told the noise caused by Nicholas McCluskey, of Lupton Walk, Lowedges, was captured by monitoring equipment installed near his property.

It was found to constitute “a statutory nuisance” in the opinion of the environmental protection officer and an abatement notice was served.

Following a breach of the notice, which was also recorded on the monitoring equipment, a possession order has been approved by the court.

McCluskey - who admitted the offences - has been told he will be evicted if he does not cause further nuisance or annoyance to his neighbours.

He must also ensure he pays his rent and arrears but if he breaches the terms of the order, the council can apply to the court for a warrant for his eviction.

Coun Penny Baker, Sheffield Council’s cabinet member for housing, said: “This kind of behaviour will not be tolerated, and I hope Mr McCluskey realises this is his final warning and shows more consideration towards his neighbours from now on.”
