Magistrates granted the order after Police were repeatedly called to deal with 'persistent' trouble and disorder at the address in Sassoon Close.

Wiltshire Police asked for the closure order following a series of calls and reports of anti-social behaviour at the house.

WHAT A 'CLOSURE ORDER' MEANS

The closure order states:

  • Nobody other than the occupant is permitted to enter the property
  • Also, nobody other than emergency services or those authorised by the local housing association and Wiltshire Council, are permitted to enter the property
  • The order will remain in place for THREE months

Salisbury's Police Inspector, Pete Sparrow said:

"The order was applied for following a series of calls to the address regarding anti-social behaviour, disorder and nuisance to those living nearby."

"This kind of persistent behaviour is unacceptable and can really impact on the quality of life of the residents in the area."

"We will work closely with the housing association and local authority to monitor the effectiveness of this order and ensure that it is being fully adhered to over the next 12 weeks."

"It is hoped that the order will protect the occupant and is especially important during the current Covid-19 restrictions on non essential travel, that the order is adhered to and those from different households are not visiting the premises."

Cllr Laura Mayes, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Protection said:

"This order underlines a clear message that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and action will be taken. We will work closely with our partners to ensure this order is adhered to for the benefit of both the occupant and neighbours."
