Closure Order against a house in Bootle issued

ON Thursday, 10 December 2015, Merseyside Police, in conjunction with Sefton Council and Plus Dane Housing, were successful in obtaining a Full Closure Order on 17 Salisbury Avenue, Bootle, at South Sefton Magistrates Court. Neighbourhood Sergeant Kate Young said:- "We can confirm that a Closure Order has been put in place at an address on Salisbury Avenue. The order was applied for by the local Neighbourhood Policing Team in response to numerous calls being received from members of the public who had experienced a prolonged period of anti-social behaviour by the resident and visitors to the address. The complaints received included incidents of anti social behaviour, drug dealing and drug taking linked to the address, as well as people calling there with connections to gang related activity. The order was approved at Sefton Magistrates Court and means that from 21 December 2015, the house will be closed to all persons for a 3 month period. Once the order expires Plus Dane Housing will ensure that any new tenant in the property is appropriately vetted to prevent any issues recurring. The Closure Order is put in place in an effort to reduce the level of crime reported in the area and to allow the local residents of Bootle to enjoy the quality of life that they are entitled to. The property was associated with anti social behaviour in the area and appeared to have become a hub for local gangs in the area who were using it to use and sell drugs. We will continue to target offenders and any properties associated with them who continue to cause problems for the community, and we will do this using all lawful powers available to us in order to make Bootle a safer and more peaceful place to live. This Closure Order was only made possible due to the assistance of the local community and our Council and Housing partners and we will continue to be robust in tackling criminal activity and anti social behaviour. I would encourage any members of the Bootle community who have any information to call our dedicated neighbourhood team on:- (0151) 777 3 041, via our 101 number or through Crimestoppers, anonymously, on:- 0800 555 111."
