A nuisance neighbour has been given one final chance before he is evicted from his home in Sheffield.

Council housing tenant Christopher Nortcliff, aged 22, has been warned he will be kicked out of his property if he continues with the anti-social behaviour and excessive noise which has sparked a wave of complaints.

Neighbours in White Thorns Close, Batemoor first began reporting Mr Nortcliff to the council in February 2010.

Since then his behaviour has escalated to being abusive to a council worker and being convicted of assault last year.

He admitted breaching tenancy conditions at a hearing at Sheffield County Court before District Judge David Oldham, who granted a Possession Order but suspended it for two years with strict conditions.

Coun Harry Harpham, council cabinet member for homes, said, “Mr Nortcliff has persistently behaved in an anti-social manner since moving into his council property.

“He has shown little regard for his neighbours and has breached tenancy conditions through his actions.

“I hope Mr Nortcliff understands the implications and will be able to curb his behaviour in this time.”
