A closure order has been enforced at a house after complaints of anti-social behaviour and possible drug use.

Nobody is allowed to enter the house at Caishowe Road in Borehamwood for three months after the application was heard yesterday (June 2).

Anyone who breaches the order and attempts to enter the house can be arrested.

According to Hertfordshire Constabulary, there have been many reports of drug related activity and anti-social behaviour at the site.

PC Tanya Bainbridge-Price from the Borehamwood Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “We had received numerous reports concerning anti-social behaviour and potential drug related activity at the address. This has had a huge impact on the local community.

“We worked in partnership with Clarion Housing to gather evidence in support of the closure order, which we felt was necessary to preserve the quality of life for local residents.

“I’d like to thank residents in the area for their support, which has helped us to secure this order and we hope it will reassure them that we are listening, and we will take appropriate action when they report crime and anti-social behaviour to us.

“Anyone with information about anti-social behaviour or drug activity in their neighbourhood is urged to please report the details to us, so that we can take action to make your community safer. Your calls can make a real difference."
