Swindon Borough Council v Redpath: CA 11 Sep 2009

The defendant appealed against the issuing of an anti-social behaviour order for ‘housing-related conduct’ where the conduct alleged had no connection with council tenants or property.
Held: The appeal failed. ‘Housing-related’ meant ‘directly or indirectly relating to or affecting the housing management functions of a relevant landlord’. The defendant was a former council tenant, his conduct was required to be looked at as a whole, and there was in this case a sufficiet nexus to allow the making of an order. The 2006 Act had considerably widened the scope for such orders and amounted to a fundamental reworking of the anti-social behaviour order system.
