Tenant and visitors banned from entering Christchurch apartment

A TENANT and all visitors have been banned from entering an apartment due to a court order following “serious drug-related nuisance and disorder”.

BCP council obtained the closure order for an address in Everest Road, Somerford.

Officers from the local authority’s Anti-Social Behavior Team worked with the Sovereign Housing Association and Dorset Police to bring the case to Poole Magistrates’ Court on November 4.

Councilor Bobbie Dove, holder of the Community Safety and Regulatory Services portfolio, said the action was taken “to address serious drug nuisance and disorder related to apartment 36 Cleveland Place, 87 Everest Road, Christchurch, which has had an impact on local residents”.

She said: “This action shows how the council and partner agencies are committed to taking action to protect victims and communities from serious harm and disorder.

“We will always use the tools and powers at our disposal and we hope that by obtaining this closure order, it shows that we will act on the issues that negatively impact residents in order to reduce anti-social behavior in our communities. »

The closure order prohibits anyone, including the tenant, from residing in the apartment for three months.

A spokesperson for the Christchurch Neighborhood Policing Team said Dorset Police had received repeated reports of unrest and anti-social behaviour.

“Officers worked hard with partners to compile the evidence to present in court, in order to obtain this closure order,” the spokesperson said. “It is hoped that this will significantly reduce the number of anti-social behaviors associated with the address and improve the lives of area residents.

“We will continue to work with our partner agencies to explore all options available to us to address reports of antisocial and disorderly behavior in our communities.”

Echo of Bournemouth:

The PCO Council has now obtained nine orders to close the courts since April.

Cllr Dove said they are wanted to protect individuals and the community from harm.

She added: “This demonstrates our commitment to keeping our communities safe.

“Criminal and anti-social activities have no place in the BCP.

“If residents are experiencing anti-social behavior we encourage them to report to the police by calling 101 and if there are ongoing concerns contact the Anti-Social Behavior Team at [email protected].”
