On Tuesday 6th January 2015 Thames Valley Police issued a closure notice, under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Police Act, at a residential property in Keats Close, Aylesbury.
The closure notice is the first to be issued by Thames Valley Police in Buckinghamshire and prevents anyone, other than the occupant of the property, from entering for the next 48 hours.
The closure notice was authorised after reports of anti-social behaviour at the property and close co-operation with the district council and housing provider.
On Thursday 8th January 2015 Thames Valley Police officers will apply to Wycombe Magistrates’ Court for a closure order which, if granted, will exclude everyone from the property, including the occupant, for three months.
Closure Orders can be made in respect of premises that cause significant and persistent disorder, or persistent serious nuisance to a community.
LPA Commander for Aylesbury, Supt Olly Wright, said: ‘This is the first anti-social closure notice issued in Buckinghamshire. Anti-social behaviour can be incredibly disruptive on the local community and Thames Valley Police officers will do everything in their power to put a stop to it.‘
