A High Wycombe man has been banned from repairing vehicles that do not belong to him and disturbing the peace for two years.

Michael North, from Oldhouse Close, has been slapped with a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) which prevents him from carrying out repairs to vehicles he does not own in Oldhouse Close or Lansdowne Way until July 2020.

The CBO also prevents him from blocking access to his neighbours’ properties, parking spaces and footpaths, and using aggressive or threatening words or behaviour, including revving his engine to intimidate other people.

North is also not allowed to disturb the peace of other residents by gathering in Lansdowne Way or Oldhouse Close, either by himself or with others, at any time and talking in a “loud or offensive manner”.

The ban comes after the 38-year-old failed to comply with a community protection notice at least six times.

A community protection notice is aimed to prevent unreasonable behaviour that is having a negative impact on the community's quality of life.

Wycombe Magistrates’ Court heard that on multiple occasions, he blocked his neighbours’ driveways or garages and carried out “numerous” unwanted repairs on their vehicles.

The court also heard that during one incident, he disturbed the peace by encouraging two other drivers to rev their vehicle engines.

North has been ordered to pay a total of £6,248 in fines for his behaviour.
