A UXBRIDGE res­i­dent has been given a court or­der fol­low­ing sev­eral un­li­censed events in Oc­to­ber, in­clud­ing a party that saw around 200 peo­ple in the quiet cul-de-sac.

Po­lice say the im­pact on the local com­mu­nity was “im­mense” and that mul­ti­ple com­plaints were made about the ad­dress in Bosan­quet Close.

Of­fi­cers from Hilling­don Po­lice’s an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour team at­tended Uxbridge Mag­is­trates’ Court and ob­tained a three-month Prop­erty Clo­sure Or­der for the ad­dress, which re­stricts who can en­ter the prop­erty.

The un­li­censed events in­cluded the erec­tion of a large mar­quee, DJs play­ing mu­sic through­out the night, Por­taloos be­ing in­stalled, and bar­be­cues, with around 200 peo­ple at­tend­ing, ac­cord­ing to the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Po­lice.

The oc­cu­pant has been is­sued with the clo­sure or­der that short­lists who can en­ter the prop­erty, a noise abate­ment or­der, a for­mal warn­ing ban­ning par­ties at the ad­dress, and an in­junc­tion to stop the res­i­dent from en­gag­ing in an­ti­so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties, which could lead to an ar­rest if it is breached.

Neigh­bours com­plained to both the po­lice and Hilling­don Council about the noise, drunken crowds and the num­ber of ve­hi­cles crammed into the quiet res­i­den­tial area.

Ad­vice from the po­lice to any­one who has con­cerns about sim­i­lar events be­ing planned in their area should con­tact them ei­ther by call­ing 101 or the Lon­don Bor­ough of Hilling­don an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour team on 0800 694 0240.
