NEWPORT HOME PARTIALLY CLOSED BY POLICE AFTER PERSISTENT ANTISOCIAL BEHAVIOUR

A Newport home has been partially closed by police, working in partnership with Sovereign Housing, following persistent anti-social behaviour and disorder.

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.

I wouldn’t mind living there, I would rather live on pan with genuine working class people who look out for each other,then a snobby private road full of judgemental nosy curtain twitchers who are scared of there own shadows (and there the nice ones!).

crack on then MC you live there then and you will soon realise that the working class, comeradic utopia you describe doesn’t exist, outside of the families and their mates in each little cluster on those estates.

if you are “in” a group they watch out for each other, however, they will harass everyone else around them if it suits them.

Robbo, not just the Island; it’s everywhere. There are places in Northampton (where I now live) just like that too. Back in the ’90s, they were seen as affluent and the desired place to live. Then, the Labour government introduced changes to housing policy (which was carried over by the Conservatives) whereby all housing should be made accessible to all, not just those with large salaries/large mortgages. Subsequently, you now have areas whereby multiple houses have been purchased by either private landlords or social housing trusts. The impact is that many areas which used to be called affluent are seeing a decrease in the value of the homes due to the high volume of short-term tenants moving in next door. Once, you would see manicured lawns, no little around, communities supporting each other. Nowadays, you frequently see piss/shit-stained mattresses just dumped, along with various other abandoned items. Grass verges and… Read more »

No it’s not a shame, it is utter bollox,shame on you rather for saying such nonsense! But you are right about just not an island issue regarding crime. It is a national, European, global problem. I blame overpopulation, globalization, immigration, multicultrelism,,disparyation between the very rich and the very poor, plus 24 hour rolling news coverage, happy days!

stefan is right..

the labour government introduced a social engineering policy to place supposed good quality council housing tenants into private estates and streets, by buying up some properties using taxpayers cash.

The idea was that those council tenants would up their way of life to match that of the existing private, homeowning neighbours – a noble idea that was doomed to failure from the start…

why..because the home owners property values came down, as it was now partial social housing and invariably those tenants did not upgrade their lives, they just brought the street down to their level.

with buy to let, a number of owners,lease the properties to the council on a 25 year contract and they shove whichever deadbeat tenant they want into it.

result – nice, clean private areas all messed up with societies deadbeats

Yep, you are right, but it works both ways,what with gentrification pushing out families from there local areas where they have been established for hundreds of years,as they have been priced out of the area by coffee house drinking darlings looking down at you,plus add in the factor of multicultural influence and being a
Minority in your own country and your bound to have the ump ! Put that in your pipe and smoke it. Innit bruv X
