Closure order secured for Bournemouth property

24 May 2019
Officers working with the local council have secured a closure order for a property in Bournemouth linked to anti-social behaviour.

The order was secured for the address in Belle Vue Road on Wednesday 22 May 2019 after Poole Magistrates’ Court served a three-month closure notice under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

Local officers worked with Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP) Council to secure the order following repeated reports of anti-social behaviour linked to the property.

Sergeant Ashley White, of the Bournemouth East Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We have worked closely with our council partners in response to the concerns that have been raised in relation to this property.

“We appreciate the significant impact this activity has had on neighbouring residents and have worked hard to compile evidence to put before the court.

“I hope this order shows we will act on issues raised by residents and take all action available to us to reduce anti-social behaviour in our communities.”

Matthew King, Community Enforcement and Anti-Social Behaviour Manager BCP Council, said: ‘‘The activity at the property instigated by the occupants led to significant concerns and alarm to the local community.

"Those responsible consistently refused to engage or improve their behaviour and officers from the Anti-Social Behaviour Team and the local police were left with no choice but to seek a closure on the property, which is always a last resort. 

"We are pleased that the court supported this decision after reviewing the extensive evidence from the case, tirelessly compiled by officers, and we hope this illustrates that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated.’’

Anyone who has concerns about anti-social behaviour in their community is urged to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, via email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk or call us on 101.
