Closure order to protect Sheerwater residents from anti-social behaviour
Action has been taken to curb anti-social behaviour in Sheerwater with a closure order granted against a property following concerns raised by residents.
Woking Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) and the Anti-Social Behaviour Team worked together to obtain a full closure on the property in Dartmouth Avenue, with the order being granted at Guildford Magistrates Court on August 15. This followed numerous reports about ASB from a resident at that address.
The order prohibits anyone from entering the property until midnight on Wednesday, 14 November 2018. If anyone does enter the property before that date, they will be arrested.
Police Constable Tony Charles, from Woking SNT said:
“This result is a huge relief for the residents of Dartmouth Avenue who have had to endure months of excessive noise and disturbances. I am very happy that we have been able to support the Sheerwater community, as this outcome will positively effect a lot of the local residence lives.
“This outcome sends a clear message that this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated in our community, and we want to make it clear that we will listen to concerns from members of our communities and we will act
“No one should have to put up with this kind of behaviour in or around their homes, and no one should feel they have to put up with anti-social behaviour or suffer in silence.”
