Closure order for Amesbury address following ongoing anti-social behaviour
Main article content
A closure order has been granted for a house in Amesbury following concerns regarding anti social behaviour at the address.
The closure order was granted at Salisbury Magistrates Court on January 20 and means that nobody other than the residents, police or those authorised by Wiltshire Council, can enter the property in Maple Way for a period of three months. Anyone caught breaching the order will be committing a criminal offence and will be prosecuted.
PCSO Sam Flippance said: “We have been receiving regular reports from neighbours of anti social behaviour including noise complaints and disorderly behaviour coming from this address which is of great concern to us, and the residents living nearby.” Despite regular visits from police conducting high visibility patrols, and with assistance from various partner agencies, the reports of anti-social behaviour have continued.
PCSO Flippance added: “Based on this information, we applied for a closure order to prevent the anti-social behaviour associated with the address which has been causing distress for residents living in the local area.
“We will continue to carry out patrols in the area and work in partnership with local authorities to ensure the order is adhered to.”
The closure order is in place until April 2022. The penalty for beaching it is up to 51 weeks in prison, a fine, or both.
