Visitors to a Peterborough flat have been banned for three months to try and bring to an end anti-social behaviour.
And Cambridgeshire police has invited anyone with information about the order being breached to contact them online at www.cambs.police.uk/report or to call 101.
Police say they applied for a court order “following persistent anti-social behaviour.”
The order was issued to 159 Kesteven Walk, Eastgate, following a successful application at Peterborough magistrates’ court this morning (Wednesday).
It states the premises is subject to a partial 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 the legal tenant, members of the emergency services and any employee of the landlord – Cross Keys Homes – until 12 December 2023.
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.
“As a result of great work between various police departments and partner agencies, we have been able to secure this partial closure which we hope that, by preventing visitors, will significantly reduce the impact on other residents and allow them and their families to be in their homes without feeling intimidated.
“Failure to comply with the order is a criminal offence which could result in imprisonment for up to three months, a fine, or both.”
