Ashford Borough Council versus Fergus Wilson in the High Court

Published: 15/03/2024
The High Court, London

Ashford Borough Council returned to the High Court this week alleging that landlord Fergus Wilson has continued to harass staff and councillors in breach of a previous court injunction.

The hearing in the High Court relates to a case in September 2021, when the Council succeeded in obtaining an injunction restraining the defendant, Fergus Wilson, from harassing current and former officers, employees, councillors and agents. The judgment required that the defendant only had contact with one senior officer at the Council.

Anthony Dunne KC, sitting as a Judge of the High Court, heard evidence from the authority that since the previous injunction was secured, Mr Wilson has on multiple occasions continued to contact and harass staff and councillors on a range of issues.

Mr Wilson, of Boughton Monchelsea near Maidstone, represented himself in court.

Judge Dunne reserved judgment and is expected to publish his decision next month.
