Two men and two companies will go on trial in April to answer charges relating to the maintenance of apartment buildings in Bradford.
The charges all relate to the running of All Saints Hall and Laisteridge B at Laisteridge Lane Student Village over a period last year.
Harris Akhtar, of Laisteridge Student Village, Bhupinder Chohan, of Keats Way, London, Hill and Standard Development Ltd of Long Lane, London, and B and M Properties of Long Lane, London, were all listed to appear at Bradford and Keighley Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.
All four have been charged by Bradford Council with contravening/failing to comply with an abatement notice.
The full charge read: “Between May 13, 2021 and October 1, 2021 at All Saints Hall and Trinity B at Laisteridge Lane Student Village, having been served with an abatement notice under section 80(1) of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 by Bradford Council, without reasonable excuse contravened or failed to comply with a requirement, namely to re-instate the gas supply as to ensure the satisfactory supply of hot water to the kitchen and bathroom facilities to the said buildings and thus prohibit the recurrence of the said statutory nuisance within the said buildings, imposed by the notice.”
The defendants did not appear in court on Tuesday, and a trial date was set for April 20.
