Closure Order for property in Camberley

A Closure Order has been obtained on a property in Camberley after numerous reports associated with serious nuisance and anti-social behaviour.

The order at 39 Turf Hill Road was granted after evidence was heard at South West Surrey Magistrate’s Court in Guildford on Thursday 12 November, which demonstrated the property to be connected with a history of significant reports of ongoing anti-social behaviour.

Magistrates heard how residents’ lives had been impacted by the behaviour of the occupants, which made those nearby, including families with young children, feel threatened and fearful.

Surrey Heath Neighbourhood Sergeant Alan Poland said: “The impact of the occupants’ behaviour on their neighbours cannot be underestimated – they have caused people to feel intimidated and frightened in their own neighbourhood. This order, which was obtained in partnership with Accent Group Housing Association, should help the estate return to a peaceful enjoyable place to live and bring up families and demonstrates Surrey Police will not stand by while people make the lives of others a misery.”

The premises has been boarded up as a result of the notification with notices informing the public it is closed to protect the neighbourhood from future acts of anti-social behaviour. The order was granted with immediate effect under the Part 4 Chapter 3 Section 80 of the ASB Crime and Policing Act and the property will be sealed for a three month period providing respite for the community.

Accent Group is in the process of repossessing the property and if successful the tenant will be permanently excluded from the property. The order is in place until 11 February 2016 and anyone seen entering the property will be liable to arrest and is liable to receive a fine or face a custodial sentence for breaching the order.
