Closure order secured for Boscombe property

06 June 2019
Officers working with the local council have secured a closure order for a property in the Boscombe area of Bournemouth linked to anti-social behaviour.

The order was secured for the flat in Boscombe Spa Road on Wednesday 5 June 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 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.

“Officers have been repeatedly called to reports of anti-social behaviour and drug misuse at this flat, which has had a significant impact on neighbouring residents. We 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, BCP Council Community Enforcement & Anti-social Behaviour Manager, said: "Despite efforts by our Anti-social Behaviour Team and colleagues at the police, the unacceptable behaviour and disturbance has continued; therefore we are pleased with this outcome following a lot of hard work. We will always seek to protect victims of disorder and use powers available to us for those individuals that refuse to engage positively and reconsider their behaviours."

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.
