A closure order has been secured on a property linked to a string of alleged anti-social behaviour offences.
The Basildon Community Policing Team worked with partners at Basildon Council to address behaviour involving tenants of the property in Ward Close, Laindon.
Yesterday, on Monday June 3, following a hearing at Basildon Magistrates’ Court, a three-month closure order was granted by the court.
The tenant, a 47-year-old woman and those living with her, have also been immediately evicted and are unable to return to the property.
Sgt Rob Maile of the Basildon Community Policing Team said: “We will always act on intelligence and concerns raised by the community in relation to reports of anti-social behaviour.
“It is a type of offence that hugely impacts on the quality of life of residents and we are only too aware of that and do all we can, working with partners, to tackle these issues.”
Cllr Andrew Gordon, Basildon Council’s Vice Chairman of the Housing and Communities Committee, added “As part of the Safer Basildon Partnership, the Council’s anti-social behaviour team works closely with Essex Police to tackle individuals intent on affecting other residents peaceful enjoyment of their homes. Whilst this action is not taken lightly, it is considered necessary following historic anti-social behaviour. I hope this action highlights our commitment to helping keeping our borough safe.”
