Stockport Homes’ Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) Service has secured a three month closure order on 32 Dorset Avenue, Brinnington. The closure was obtained following numerous complaints from residents in the area after it was identified as a hub of Anti-social behaviour.
The problems included:
- Known drug offenders and Drug dealing happening at the property.
- Youth congregating outside and being abusive to passers-by.
- Off road bikes nuisance.
Greater Manchester Police executed two positive drugs warrants at the property and worked closely with Stockport Homes and the Local Authority to secure the evidence needed to seek the Closure Order.
The closure was completed on Thursday 3rd November and is the first closure order in Brinnington under the new Crime and Policing Act 2014 and sends a strong message to the residents of Brinnington that Stockport Homes, in partnership with the Police and the Local Authority, will take action to close down nuisance premises, when appropriate.
The ASB Service is hopeful this will also give residents the courage to continue to report incidents with the confidence that positive action will follow.
Robin Burman, Chair of Stockport Homes said,
This is excellent example of partnership working, whereby the community and multi-agency partnership have made a determined stand against ASB. We will not tolerate ASB in Stockport and this action will give local residents a welcome reprieve from the chronic ASB they have had to endure from this property.
