Complaints of antisocial behaviour result in interim ASBO

An interim Antisocial Behaviour Order (ASBO) has been granted against Maxine Cullen (42) of Goose Green Avenue, Musselburgh following an application to Edinburgh Sheriff Court by East Lothian Council.

The court was presented with details of Ms Cullen’s alleged antisocial behaviour which included shouting, swearing and playing music at levels that caused alarm and distress to other residents of Goose Green Avenue.

The terms of the interim ASBO prohibit Ms Cullen from shouting and swearing when at her property and prohibit her from permitting or encouraging visitors to do the same. Ms Cullen is also prohibited from having more than two visitors at her property at any one time, except individuals who are there in the course of their employment, and from playing loud music at the property.

A council spokesperson said: “East Lothian Council, with the full support of Police Scotland, will take robust enforcement action against those whose behaviour causes alarm and distress to others. In this case, the council acted on receipt of numerous complaints from members of the public. I would encourage anyone who is affected by antisocial behaviour to contact the Safer Communities Team on 01875 824 307.”
