Woman given town centre ban for nuisance behaviour
A woman has been banned from Newark town centre because of her anti-social behaviour.
Chloe Parr, 21, of Staunton Road, Newark, was said to be a nuisance and having a negative impact on the community.
A Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) was granted at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court, which heard she had been responsible for numerous incidents of anti-social behaviour in the town centre.
Newark and Sherwood District Council, in partnership with Nottinghamshire Police, obtained the order, which will run until May 9, 2020.
Parr is prohibited from entering the town centre at any time other than to attend probation appointments at Castle House, Great North Road, and her solicitors’ office on Stodman Street.
Mr Ben Adams, district council community safety manager, said: "This individual has been given many chances to obtain support and still continues to cause nuisance in Newark town centre.
"We cannot allow her anti-social behaviour to have a further negative impact on the local community.
"We have worked with the police to secure a new CBO, which excludes her from the town centre.
"The decision to exclude an individual from any area is not taken lightly, but in this case there has been no alternative."
Sergeant Paul Cash, of Newark Neighbourhood Policing Team, said they worked with partners to support people and help them address their behaviour.
"If this is not successful, we will take firm enforcement action to put boundaries in place on individuals who persistently cause anti-social behaviour in the district," he said.
"We will continue to work alongside agencies to continue the offers of support to this individual to try to prevent future offences."
