Reading Magistrates' Court: Thames Valley Police granted closure order on Hungerford home
POLICE have been granted a closure order on a Hungerford home on the grounds of antisocial behaviour.
A previous hearing was adjourned when residents of the property, including Dean Boness, opposed the application.
At a resumed hearing on Tuesday, August 2, solicitor Paul Cantrill, acting on behalf of residents of 7 Northview, argued against granting the order.
Police officers outlined the nature of the behaviour which had plagued local residents.
District judge Kathryn Verghis granted the application.
Thames Valley Police have now posted the following on social media: "Yesterday #HungerfordandDowlandsNHPT and the problem solving team successfully obtained a three month House Closure Order at an address in Hungerford.
"ASB [antisocial behaviour], disorder and nuisance behaviour will not be tolerated in our communities and we will continue to protect the community."
The successful application was made under section 80 of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.
