Closure Order to tackle antisocial behaviour

Rushmoor Borough Council has taken action to exclude a tenant from a rental property in Cambridge Road, Aldershot following six months of antisocial behaviour and disruption.

On Wednesday 4 August, a Closure Order was made at Basingstoke Magistrates Court meaning that the council could move to exclude the tenant as well as a regular visitor to the property for an initial three-month period. 

If that order is breached at any time, the individuals could face arrest and prosecution. 

This action follows six months of antisocial behaviour associated with the home including reports of late-night noise, drug use and violent incidents which has caused concern and disruption to others living nearby and resulted in a number of complaints. 

Councillor Maurice Sheehan, Cabinet Member for Operational Services at Rushmoor Borough Council said: "It's unfortunate that the actions of just a couple of people can cause so much worry and distress to others and I am pleased that we have been able to take such strong action against these individuals in this case."  

Councillor Sheehan added: "If you are concerned about antisocial behaviour in your neighbourhood, you can report it to the police by calling 101 or getting in touch with our community safety team." 

After the initial three months, the council will also have the option of applying to the court for a further three-month extension. 

Further information and advice about reporting antisocial behaviour is available on our Antisocial behaviour page.
