Town centre injunction remains for Malone


Cheltenham residents are reminded that a town centre injunction remains in force for the next six months for Philip Malone.

Mr Phillip Malone, 45 of 6 Vittoria Walk, Cheltenham was given a Civil Injunction under the Antisocial Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 by Gloucestershire County Court  on Tuesday 13 December 2016 for a period of one year because of his anti-social behaviour in Cheltenham. The council’s public protection team led the investigation with support from Gloucestershire Police, local businesses and members of the public.

In December, Philip Malone served two custodial sentences, when he breached the terms of the injunction set by Gloucestershire County Court.

Mr Malone was offered help and support to address his antisocial behaviour and received warnings prior to Cheltenham Borough Council taking this legal action. The Injunction was necessary to provide protection and respite for Cheltenham’s residents, businesses and visitors.

Mr Malone is forbidden (whether by himself or by instructing or encouraging or permitting any other person) from:

  1. Engaging in conduct which causes or is capable of causing a nuisance or annoyance to any person in the town of Cheltenham
  2. Being inside the excluded area (this includes Burton Street, Poole way, Swindon Road, St Margaret’s Road, North Street, Clarence Street and Knapp Road)
  3. Being in possession of any open container of alcohol in a public place (excluding licensed premises)
  4. Using or threatening to use violence to any person in the town of Cheltenham.

If Mr Malone breaches the order again, he will face the consequences at court. If anyone witnesses Mr Malone breaching these conditions, please contact the police on their non-emergency number 101.

Lisa Jones, anti-social behaviour co-ordinator for Cheltenham Borough Council, said: “I hope this sends out a very strong message that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and also to encourage members of the public to report all breaches to the police”.
