A property in Swaffham has been partially closed down by Breckland’s Operational Partnership Team, following ongoing issues with anti-social behaviour.

Norfolk Police says the house on Lancaster Road has been the subject of regular complaints about nuisance behaviour, late-night parties, drug and alcohol abuse, fighting, and abusive language.

The team has been working closely with partner agencies including Sage Homes and Breckland District Council to address ongoing concerns and the issues at the address.

Officers attended Norwich Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday to seek a closure order under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

The closure order has been granted for a period of three months making it a criminal offence for anyone except certain named individuals and agencies to be inside the property.

Insp Simon Jones, of Breckland Neighbourhood Policing, said: “We know that anti-social behaviour can have a significant negative impact on people living nearby.

“The Operational Partnership team has worked hard to get this closure order which will have a lasting positive impact on the lives of those people in and around Lancaster Road.”
