A full closure order has been granted against a property in Camborne following several reports of anti-social behaviour associated with it.

Magistrates in Truro granted the order for the address in Holman's Court on Wednesday following request from the neighbourhood policing team and Cornwall Council's anti-social behaviour team.

The granting of the full closure order comes after collaborative work between both teams to resolve the issues associated with the occupants of the property.

They said the decision to apply for the full closure order was not taken lightly, and it was done to prevent further distress to the community, as the anti-social behaviour was having a detrimental impact on the lives of local people.

A full closure order means no one will be able to enter the property for a designated period of time, without risking a fine, imprisonment or both. In this case, the closure order against the property at Holman's Court is in place for three months.

Collaborative work between the police and Cornwall Council’s anti-social behaviour team will continue throughout the duration of the closure order to ensure the previous occupants of the property cannot continue to negatively impact local communities.

Sergeant Dave Bardle said: “We would like to thank local residents for raising the issues with us and we will continue to work with the anti-social behaviour team to tackle the issues raised.”

In order to prevent further anti-social behaviour and to resolve the issues relating to this property, the police have worked alongside partner agencies to engage with local people who have been affected. Members of the local community are encouraged to report any suspected breaches of the closure order to the police, who will take action.

Inspector Louisa Brown said: “We are grateful to the local community for initially raising their concerns with us. We take reports of this nature seriously, and the neighbourhood team work hard to act upon the concerns of our community and take action to improve our local area.”

“Please continue to report any concerns to us either in person or using our website. We are really pleased that the closure order was granted against this property, and we believe this is a positive step in improving the lives of local people.”
