Closure Order – Yeovil
Avon & Somerset Police have successfully applied for a renewal of a closure order on a property in Yeovil. The original order was for 3 months on a property at 61 Marl Close in the Hollands are of the town. The initial order was requested in November. It followed frequent reports of anti social behaviour and disorder at the property.
Beat manager PC Louise Wareham told us: “During the three months the closure order was in place, the area has become a better place to live according to the residents. They were so relieved the order was granted back in November and supported us seeking an extension. People have told us that the place has returned to being a peaceful and quiet place to live, which is great to hear. Nobody should be forced to endure antisocial behaviour on their doorstep and we’ve worked with Abri Housing to make sure proactive action has been taken.”
The court accepted the application for a further extension made last month.
