Canterbury City Council v Lowe: CA 2001

The defendants had made the lives of a neighbour and his daughter (and his mentally ill mother, who sometimes visited them) ‘a completely misery’. The trial judge had received graphic evidence about the very serious nature of the defendants’ behaviour.
Held: The court decided that an immediate, not a suspended, possession order was appropriate, but expressed great concern about the difficulty of proving a breach of the order on the facts of that case.
