The Closure Order was granted under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 and the property was closed on the same day bringing immediate relief and respite to the Community.

The Housing Team would like to thank the community and the Police for working together and assisting in resolving the problem. 

The premises will be closed for three months, this means that no person aside from the Police and the Council can enter the property.
