Following information gathered by Humberside Police Hull West neighbourhood officers during a week of action in The Shires area of Hull earlier this month, a closure notice has been served on a residential property where a number of problems had been reported by residents.
The 48-hour closure notice was served on the house on Dorset Street following complaints about antisocial behaviour, groups of youths causing a nuisance there, climbing on roofs and intimidating behaviour.
It follows concerns from people living nearby who reported that such incidents had been going on for the good part of a year.
Community Beat Manager for Newington and Gypsyville, PC Nicole Robertson said: “Warnings had been given to the people living in the house by us, the council and the landlord but their behaviour continued.
“They are due at Magistrates Court in Hull tomorrow where it will decided if a 3-month-long partial closure order will be imposed.
“It will mean that only the registered tenants and the landlord will be allowed to enter the property.
“This has been done in full agreement with the landlord.
“A week of action was carried out around The Shires earlier this month with our neighbourhood officers, the Fire Service, local councillors and Hull City Council.
“We carried out our Humber Talking surveys, held surgeries, and spoke with people in the community about any issues they wanted addressing.
“This is just one of those. We’re also looking at longer term solutions in the area, will take positive action like this when needed, and will be working with our partners and residents to resolve any problems they might have.”
