No more neighbours from hell

I'm very encouraged by the governments plans to speed up the time it takes to evict tenants engaging in serious anti-social behaviour.

Currently it can take more than a year to remove "neighbours from hell" - ruining the lives of good people around them and ruining the reputation of streets and estates.

Housing Minister Grant Shapps is taking forward these important steps to prevent anti-social behaviour forcing many hardowrking, good families to live in fear.

This comes on top of our review of the powers available to the police and councils to deal with anti-social behaviour.
