Main article content
A partial closure order has been secured on a second address in Borehamwood, following recent incidents of disorder linked to the property.
The order was granted by St Albans Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday (24 October) and prohibits anyone other than those specifically named on court documents from entering the address in Lamberton 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.
Senior ASB Officer for Hertsmere, Claire Morris, said: “This is the second such order we have secured this month, as part of our ongoing work to tackle issues in the area. Everyone has the right to live peacefully and without fear.
“Regular patrols have been carried out since the incident occurred and I hope this order provides further 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 and Transformation at Hertsmere Borough Council, said: “Hertsmere Community Safety Partnership works together to keep the borough a safe place for all. This is an example of how we are working collaboratively to reduce anti-social behaviour and criminality within the borough.”
