The court order is for three months and follows persistent anti-social behaviour. The order was issued to 159 Kesteven Walk, Eastgate, following a successful application at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court.

It states the premises is subject to a full closure order as its use has resulted in disorderly, offensive, or criminal behaviour, causing serious nuisance to members of the public.

The property is closed to anyone other than any employee of Cross Keys Homes (CKH) or the property owner until 25 January 2024.

Failure to comply with the order is a criminal offence which could result in imprisonment for up to three months, a fine, or both.

Sergeant Rob Reay, from the force’s Partnership and Prevention Team, said: “Over a prolonged period there has been persistent reports and information relating to people visiting the address including drug use, intimidation, and anti-social behaviour.

“A partial closure order was served on the property on 13 September, which allowed the legal tenant to remain at the address, however since then, he has not co-operated with the order and repeatedly encouraged visitors therefore we have taken this further action and sought a full closure order which removes him from the property.

“We hope this action will significantly reduce the impact on other residents and allow them and their families to be in their homes without feeling intimidated.”

CKH’s Assistant Director of Operations, Gemma Cook, added: “We take a zero-tolerance approach to illegal behaviour and will always take the most robust action we can against those that cause anti-social behaviour to protect residents living in our communities.

“We are pleased that a full closure order has been granted, which will help to provide much needed respite to local residents and encourage any CKH resident who is experiencing serious anti-social behaviour to speak to us directly so that our specialist team can help to support them.”

Anyone with information about the order being breached should contact police online at www.cambs.police.uk/report or call 101.
