A partial closure order has been secured on an address in Borehamwood, following recent incidents of disorder linked to the property.
The order was granted by St Albans Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (12 October) and prohibits anyone other than the tenant and named professionals from entering the address in Milby Court for the next 12 weeks.
Anyone who breaches this order could be arrested and have further action taken against them.
Police worked alongside Hertsmere Borough Council and Clarion Housing to secure the order following an affray in the area last month. Multiple people were arrested in connection with the incident and enquiries are continuing at this time.
Further action is also ongoing around a second address in the area, linked to the disorder.
Senior ASB Officer for Hertsmere, Claire Morris, said: “We will not tolerate those who engage in any kind of disorder which causes fear among the local community. Residents should be able to live and work in peace and we will do everything within our power to ensure this is the case.
“Regular patrols have been carried out since the incident and I hope this order provides some additional reassurance around the actions we are taking.
“Anyone with concerns about anti-social behaviour or criminality in their neighbourhood is urged to please report the details to police so that we can take action to make your community safer. Your calls can make a real difference."
Cllr Christian Gray, Portfolio Holder for Communities, Neighbourhoods, Enforcement, Economic Development & Transformation, said: “This is another example of how the Hertsmere Community Safety Partnership works together to keep the borough a safe place for all.”
