Home closed in anti-so­cial case

Loughborough Echo - - NEWS -

A SEV­ENTH home has been closed and its ten­ant re­moved in North West Le­ices­ter­shire in re­la­tion to drugs and anti-so­cial be­hav­iour.

The clo­sure or­der, at an ad­dress in Whitwick, was suc­cess­fully ap­plied for at Le­ices­ter Mag­is­trates’ Court on Fri­day by Le­ices­ter­shire Po­lice and North West Le­ices­ter­shire Dis­trict Coun­cil as part of a joint op­er­a­tion.

It fol­lows the clo­sure of six ad­dresses in and around Coalville last week in the first op­er­a­tion of its kind in Le­ices­ter­shire due to the large num­ber of prop­er­ties in­volved.

Ten­ants were given the op­por­tu­nity to op­pose the or­ders at court which were sought fol­low­ing months of anti-so­cial be­hav­iour caus­ing mis­ery to nearby res­i­dents.

In­spec­tor Richard Jack­son, from North West Le­ices­ter­shire Neigh­bour­hood Polic­ing Area, who over­saw the op­er­a­tion, said: “Once again we wel­come the clo­sure or­der and hope it brings an end to the mis­ery and grief res­i­dents liv­ing close by were ex­pe­ri­enc­ing.

“This pos­i­tive ac­tion has been taken in con­junc­tion with the coun­cil and high­lights our de­ter­mi­na­tion to deal with those who have such a neg­a­tive im­pact on our com­mu­ni­ties.”
