A closure order on a property in Newhaven has been extended for a further three months, after its positive impact on the local community.
The closure was initially secured at the property in Gibbon Road on 19 July, following numerous reports of anti-social behaviour, nuisance, and disorder. At the hearing, police submitted evidence demonstrating that residents’ lives had been hugely impacted by a significant number of incidents involving disorderly, offensive, and criminal behaviour.
The occupants of the address were moved elsewhere, and the positive effect of the order was immediate.
Sergeant Vokins, of the Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Reports of disorder and nuisance at this address stopped when the order was granted and we are committed to keeping it that way. The extension ensures that the local residents feel safe in their community and can continue to live without fear of further anti-social behaviour affecting their lives. We would like to extend our thanks to the community for their support on this issue.”
The order, which prevents any persons including the occupants from entering the premises or residing therein, was extended on 16 October.
