Court orders aiming to tackle anti-social behaviour and drug offences have been issued on three properties.

The three Stevenage addresses, in Shephall Green, Broom Walk and Archer Road, were raided by Herts police in the last two weeks.

Stevenage Borough Council obtained a closure order – preventing anyone from entering the homes and causing a further nuisance to neighbours and the community – last Thursday.

The tenants have since all pleaded guilty for various offences after appearing in court and have been remanded in custody.

Councillor Ann Webb, who is responsible for housing at the council, said: “I’m pleased this operation has resulted in the three tenants being removed from their properties. All three have caused a nuisance to their neighbours and the wider community and no one should have to live with anti-social behaviour. This joint project from the police and our staff proves that we will not tolerate anyone who causes distress or harassment to their neighbours.”

These steps will help reduce anti-social behaviour in this part of Stevenage significantly and make the lives of those living nearby so much better.”
