Corby Borough Council’s Community Safety Team in partnership with Northamptonshire Police have successfully enforced a Closure Order this week on a house on Culross Walk in the Kingswood Estate, Corby. The action is all part of their ongoing commitment to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in the Borough.
An order was granted Thursday 13th February at Wellingborough Magistrates Court following several incidents and reports linked to drug dealing and anti-social behaviour. The closure order, which has been obtained under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, 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 Housing and Neighbourhood Services, Cllr Bob Eyles, said:
“This is a great result thanks to the hard work of our dedicated Safer Corby Team. 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 team for getting us to this result and we now encourage residents to please report any attempts they may witness to access the property is reported to the Police.”
