Tough Stance on Anti-Social Behaviour Issues

A three month Closure Order has been successfully granted for a Boston property.

Lincoln Magistrates Court approved the Premises Closure Order on 26 September 2018 for a property in the town’s South End estate.

Evidence was presented by both Lincolnshire Housing Partnership – LHP and Lincolnshire Police to the court following reports of anti-social behaviour incidents involving allegations of drug misuse and suspicious behaviour.

Fully supporting the course of action taken by Lincolnshire Police, LHP will be taking tenancy enforcement action against the resident to seek possession of the property.

This is second Closure Order successfully granted in recent months as LHP continues its tough stance on anti-social behaviour.

LHP anti-social behaviour manager Susan Sendall said: “This conduct has had a detrimental effect on the health and wellbeing of neighbours and the local community.

“After a catalogue of anti-social behaviour incidents, we are delighted that Lincolnshire Police have executed these closure orders, which we have fully supported.

“These Closure Orders demonstrate the continued partnership working between Lincolnshire Police and Lincolnshire Housing Partnership and our joint commitment to protecting people from harm by working for the benefit of the whole community.”
