Concerns raised by Knaphill residents has led to a successful closure order
On Wednesday, 20 June a closure order was granted by Guildford Magistrates Court for a property on Victoria Road after concerns were raised by local residents. The order has been put in place to protect members of the community from anti-social behaviour.
The closure order prohibits anyone from remaining on or entering the address. Anyone who visits the address can be arrested. The closure order will be in place until midnight Wednesday, 19 September 2018.
Police Constable Tony Charles, of the Woking Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “I am really pleased for the residents of Victoria Road, and hope they will now be able to enjoy some well-deserved peace and quiet.
“We worked closely with New Vision Homes to get the closure order granted, and I would like to thank them for their assistance. This result is also down to the residents who were brave enough to come forward and report their concerns to us.
“I would advise anyone who is subject to repeated anti-social behaviour in their own home to contact us on 101. We will try and do what we can to restore enjoyment into the local community. We really care about our communities, and you should not be made to feel that you cannot relax in your own home, this is an example of how working together can have a successful outcome.”
The closure order is necessary to prevent the behaviour, nuisance or disorder from continuing, recurring or occurring.
If you would like to report anti-social behaviour, please call us on 101 or 999 in an emergency. You can also contact independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
