The order also prohibits further anti-social behaviour against people in North Somerset and the boys were advised by the magistrates that if their behaviour did not comply with the order the council could re-apply for a curfew to be imposed.
The 12 and 15 year old boys were served with summonses just before
Christmas following complaints from shop security staff, shop assistants and local people.
'The council has taken this action following a lot of complaints from local people and retailers and we are pleased the magistrates have supported our application,' said Eileen Means, director of housing and social services.
'Anti-Social Behaviour Orders must be seen as a positive way of helping avoid more serious behaviour in the future.'
'The council hopes that the order will help the boys turn the corner and avoid further trouble in the future,' she added.
The council's move was supported by the police and local retailers.
The first order under the Crime and Disorder Act granted in England and Wales was North Somerset Council v James Critchlow on 4th June 1999.
The young man who attended an area housing office, caused damage including smashing a window, trying to jump over the counter and attack staff as well as following staff around when they went about their work outside the office and generally intimidated them.
The order has been successful in prohibiting him from entering the
Bournville housing office.
