A Newport house has been boarded up following a successful closure application at Newport Magistrates’ Court.
The three-month closure order was granted on Wednesday 18 October for an address in Tewkesbury Walk after several complaints were made relating to illegal drug use and anti-social behaviour (ASB) at the property.
Anyone who attempts to enter this property in contravention of the notice can be arrested by police during the period of the closure order.
Newport Inspector Mervyn Priest said:
“We’ve had numerous calls from the community regarding anti-social behaviour and drug use linked to this address.
"This behaviour negatively impacts the quality of life for residents and will not be tolerated in our communities.
“Tackling anti-social behaviour is a priority for us and I urge anyone with any concerns to get in contact.”
