Noisy neighbour prosecuted for second time

Eastbourne Borough Council has prosecuted a local resident for the second time in four months after continued complaints about noise from her property.
 
Cassie Waters of Ceylon Place was fined £500 after failing to appear at Hastings Magistrates Court.  Ms Waters was also ordered to pay £555 costs and a victim surcharge of £50.
 
The court case on June 24 follows an earlier hearing in April when she was fined £270 for the same offence. 
 
Councillor Jonathan Dow, Cabinet Member for Place Services, said:
 
“The council will not hesitate to take enforcement action when the lives of our residents are being made a misery by the inconsiderate actions of others.
 

“Taking legal action is very much a last resort but regrettably there are some cases, such as this one, where we have no choice and have to prosecute.”
