Blackburn scrap-dealing neighbour evicted

Lancashire Telegraph: Coun Arshid Mahmood Coun Arshid Mahmood

A BLACKBURN resident operating a scrap metal business from his rented home has been evicted after neighbours complained to the council.

Borough housing and neighbourhoods boss Arshid Mahmood reveals the events leading up to the eviction in a report to senior colleagues.

The document, to be considered by Blackburn with Darwen council’s executive board tomorrow responded to a petition from nearby residents.

Coun Mahmood says: “The petition refers to a problem of anti-social behaviour caused by a resident of Chester Close in that the resident was effectively operating a scrap metal business from his home address, much to the annoyance of other residents..

“The landlord of the property was spoken to by colleagues from the shared neighbourhood team and the community safety team and subsequently evicted his tenant.

“Therefore the root cause of the petition, the behaviour of the tenant, has been address and the problem has ceased.

“The problem was around antisocial behaviour. The anti-social behaviour has now ceased.”

The executive board will authorise a letter to the lead petitioner explain what has happened.”

People don't have a problem with free enterprise but if he was operating a business like that you need proper licenses and I doubt he would have them to be able operate from a rented house.

Or he could start a legitimate business, earn money pay taxes. Meaning he won't be able to undercut company's, resulting in them going out of business and make workers redundant.
Or if that sounds like hard work maybe get a job like the rest of us.
If you think the only way to make extra money is to rob or sell drugs you could do with giving your own head a wobble.

Firstly you have never sold drugs to my son or daughter because they aren't stupid enough to buy unknown substances from no marks.
Secondly I have worked on many council estates / local housing, and seen how people live that are on benefits and believe me none of them looked like they were hungry, flat screen tv,s full sky packages smoking drinking and laughing at me because I had to work.
So to say you've stole to buy food I can't under stand.
To many people want it all but don't want to put the graft in, so choose the easy way. What stops me from doing this MORALS.
