Property on Swaffham’s Buttercup Drive closed down after ongoing anti-social behaviour issues
A property in Swaffham has been closed down due to ongoing issues with anti-social behaviour.
Officers from the Breckland Operational Partnership Team – made up of officers from the Breckland Council anti-social behaviour team and Norfolk Police – have shut down a property on Buttercup Drive.
A spokesperson for Norfolk Police said the team has been working closely with partner agencies including Saffron Housing Trust to address ongoing concerns around the issues at the address.
Officers sought a closure order under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 when they attended Norwich Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.
The closure order was granted for three months – making it a criminal offence for anyone except certain named individuals and agencies to be inside the property.
Insp Simon Jones, Breckland Neighbourhood Policing Inspector, said: “The work conducted by the Breckland Operational Partnership team in managing and ultimately closing down this problematic address underlines how Norfolk Constabulary and our partners deal with anti-social behaviour that affects the quality of life of others.
“The work conducted by PC Cooper and the Breckland North Safer Neighbourhood Team will have a lasting positive impact on other residents within Buttercup Drive.”
