Women slapped with asbos after making neighbours lives a misery in Thornton Heath and South Norwood
Two residents who made their neighbours' lives a misery have been given Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (ASBOs).
The court heard Lewis shouted and swore at her neighbours if they parked near her house, played excessively loud music from her car late at night and was confrontational if challenge about her behaviour.
On one occasion she was caught dumping an oily substance on another neighbour's pathway and she made a number of false and malicious complaints about her neighbours to the police and Croydon Council, wasting investigating officers' time.
L'Empereur held 48-hour parties, with people coming and going throughout the day and night, magistrates were told.
She constantly played loud music, despite receiving several warnings and noise levels recordings taken from her property were described as "appalling" by council officers.
Her neighbours said she had cause significant harassment, alarm and distress as a result of hers and her friends' behaviour.
This continued for 14 years, before one brave resident took a stand and complained to the council about L'Empereur's behaviour.
Councillor Simon Hoar, cabinet member for community safety said: "People should not have to live in fear, nor face constant disturbance from others who refuse to give them any consideration or respect.
"The asbos send out a clear message that if we work together we can make a difference to Croydon’s neighbourhoods, and improve life for many people."
Both women face fines of up to £5,000 or prison for up to five years if they fail to comply with their asbos' conditions.
