Closure order issued for address in Havant

Alert message sent 27/08/2021 14:42:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Yesterday (Thursday 26 August) Havant’s Neighbourhood Policing Team, in partnership with the local housing association, secured a closure order for an address in Rowan Road, Havant, under Section 80 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime & Policing Act.

The closure order means that nobody will be allowed to enter or remain at the address for the next three months. If they do they will be committing a criminal offence and can be arrested. Police have now had the property boarded and secured.

Hampshire Constabulary applied for the order to address concerns around suspected drugs activity and anti-social behaviour.

We’ve taken this step having received a number of reports in recent months about anti-social behaviour and suspected drugs activity at the address.

The activities of those living and visiting this address have had an enormous impact on the local community which is why we worked in partnership with the relevant housing association to take action.

We would like to thank the local community for their help and patience while we worked with partners to gather the evidence needed to secure this order.

These types of closures are never simple as it ultimately means someone is moved out of their home, however support will always be afforded to those that seek it and look to change their behaviours.

Police work closely with partners to tackle anti-social behaviour, and anyone concerned about this sort of activity where they live should contact their neighbourhood policing team on 101 or contact us via our online reporting tool: https://orlo.uk/LhOBt

For any complaints surrounding neighbours, ensure you make contact with your local Housing Officer. For noise complaints please contact your local Council.
