Property involved in anti-social behaviour ordered to close
Main article content
A closure order has been granted for a Cannock property following multiple reports of anti-social behaviour.
On Thursday (23 November) at Cannock Magistrates’ Court, we secured a three-month closure for an address on Avon Road, Cannock, as a result of evidence submitted by the local policing team. This positive action is in response to persistent reports from local residents of drug use and anti-social behaviour linked to the property. The order will be in place for the next three months and prohibits any person from entering the premises other than the legal tenants, emergency service workers and professionals. Chief Inspector Laura Morrey, of the Cannock local policing team, said: “Anti-social behaviour can blight the lives of communities and unfortunately, this address has caused issues for local residents for far too long. “We have worked with partners in attempts to reduce the anti-social behaviour before seeking a closure order. “This will be policed rigidly and anybody not adhering to the order will be dealt with in accordance with the powers that this order gives. “I hope that this will send out a message that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and give some much needed respite to the local community.”
