The court of appeal has ruled that there had to be a nexus between residential premises and the person who it was sought to protect by means of an injunction for a local housing authority to obtain an injunction pursuant to s152(1)(a) of the Housing Act 1996.

Thus, there was no power to grant an injunction pursuant to the section to protect staff who had been violently attacked in a local authority office which was in the locality of residential premises.

The Times (Law, p18) reports that the court so held in dismissing an appeal brought by Enfield LBC agasint the decision of Judge Riddell at Edmonton county court on 12 March 1999 when, although granting injunctive relief against the first defendant, B, a minor, and the second defendant, his mother, based on common law tort, he declined to grant an injunction pursuant to s152.
