Closure Order Served: Tackling Anti-Social Behaviour

Blackpool Coastal Housing

Blackpool Coastal Housing in conjunction with Blackpool Council and Blackpool Police recently served a Closure Order at problem address on Grange Park, Blackpool.

This action has been a result of ongoing drug related activity at the property and concerns for the welfare of a young person.

The Closure Order prohibits anyone from entering the property who is not the named person(s) living there or any professionals who require access. The order will remain in place for three months but can be extended for a further three if necessary.

Anyone convicted of breaching the order can be arrested and may face a prison sentence of up to 51 weeks, a fine or both.

The purpose of the order is to give the local community relief from the current Anti-Social Behaviour it has been experiencing due to individuals associated with this address.

If you are a victim of anti-social behaviour and you or the perpetrator is a BCH customer, please contact our ASB team on 01253 477900 option 3 or asb@bch.co.uk

BCH are committed to tackling anti-social behaviour and protecting our customers and communities. Anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and we welcome the result of the Closure Order, which will prevent unwanted people from entering the address to support the safety of residents and provide relief to the community from anti-social behaviour. We will continue to work with partners and use all the tools and powers available to us to prevent and tackle ASB.
