Corby Borough Council’s Community Safety Team in partnership with Northamptonshire Police have successfully enforced their second Closure Order this week on a house situated in the Kingswood Estate.

An order was granted yesterday (Thursday 13th December) on 87 Culross Walk, at Northampton Magistrates Court following several incidents and reports of drug dealing and anti-social behaviour, including drug paraphernalia being found. The closure order prohibits anyone including the resident from remaining in or entering the property.

The house has now been secured and Community Safety Officers have fixed copies of the Closure Order to the premises to make it clear that it is a criminal offence for any unauthorised person to enter the address.

Corby Borough Council’s Lead Member for Neighbourhood Services, Cllr Bob Eyles, said:

“Another great result thanks to the hard work of our dedicated Community Safety Partnership. It is Corby Borough Council’s priority to keep residents safe and we will not accept drug use or anti-social behaviour in any of our properties. Thank you to the hard working teams for getting us to this result and I hope the residents surrounding this property will feel happier within their community.”
