Activity at the address, in Manor Crescent, had been having a negative impact on the quality of life of other residents, prompting calls to the police about the nuisance being caused.
A partial closure order was approved at Isle of Wight Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Monday 14th June) under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.
The order means that no one can enter the property unless they are a named and authorised person or have permission from police. Any breaches are enforceable by arrest.
Inspector Andy McDonald, from the Newport Neighbourhood Policing Team, said:
“We’ve taken this step having received a number of reports in recent months about anti-social behaviour and disorder at the address.
“We listened to local residents’ needs and concerns and worked in partnership with Sovereign Housing Association to take action.
“The activities of the occupant at this address has had a negative effect on quality of life on those living nearby. This order would not have been possible without the help and co-operation of the local community, so we would like to thank them for their support.
“I hope this order sends out the message that we will not tolerate anti-social behaviour, and we will use every available power to stop it.”
Anyone concerned about anti-social behaviour where they live should contact their neighbourhood policing team on 101. For any complaints surrounding neighbours, ensure you make contact with your local Housing Officer. For noise complaints please contact your local Council.
