A house in King Lane, Newport, was boarded up last week following a successful closure application at Newport Magistrates’ Court.
The three-month closure order was granted on 13 October after a number of complaints were made relating to anti-social behaviour (ASB) at the address. The house was boarded up on Tuesday, 19 October.
During the period of the order, anyone who attempts to enter this property in contravention of the notice, can be arrested by police.
Newport Sergeant Chris Butt said:
“High levels of anti-social behaviour linked to this property has negatively affected the quality of life for residents within King Lane for a number of months. Officers have worked with residents and partners to obtain this closure order.
“I hope that this reassures residents that if they have concerns about problem premises which are causing harm to the community, they can report it and we will work hard with our partners to take action.
“Tackling anti-social behaviour is a priority for us and I would urge anyone with any concerns to get in contact.”
