Ashfield District Council has served its second Closure Order of the year.
Following ongoing reports of criminality and anti-social behaviour including violence, drug activity and resident intimidation, a closure order was served on 109 Carsic Road, Sutton in Ashfield.
Granted at Mansfield Magistrates on 20th November, the Closure Order prevents tenants and visitors from entering the property for a period of three months. Anyone entering the address during that time without reasonable excuse will be committing an offence.
Ashfield District Council’s Community Safety Team have been working closely with Nottinghamshire Police and the Council’s Housing Team to obtain sufficient evidence in order to take robust enforcement action. The address has been a key focus at the Carsic Problem Solving and Sutton Operational Tasking meetings which are designed to manage offending behaviour, problem locations and safeguard those considered vulnerable.
Theresa Hodgkinson, Ashfield District Council’s Director for Place & Communities said “Ashfield District Council takes anti-social behaviour seriously and this Closure Order demonstrates this. This should act as a clear message to tenants that we will take action. The Council is committed to preventing the few people that choose to be anti-social from affecting the lives of their neighbours.”
