Working together with North East Derbyshire District Council, the Community Safety Partnership and the Police, Rykneld Homes has taken fresh action to reduce problems of anti-social behaviour in Tupton. A Closure Order has now been issued on two properties.
Local residents reported to Rykneld they were being targeted with threats and anti-social behaviour, as well as witnessing suspected drug activity at the two properties.
Chesterfield Magistrates Court granted a full Closure Order on a property on Jackson Avenue. The Order will last for three months and prevents anyone from attempting to enter the property during this time. A partial Closure Order (meaning only the occupant can stay in the property) was granted for a property on Sales Avenue.
The Court granted the Orders after hearing the occupants of the premises had caused anti-social behaviour problems for residents.
Rykneld Homes’ Community Sustainment Officer said, "We were very pleased to be granted these closure orders following reports from local residents about continuing nuisance behaviour from the occupants.
"Taking action like this ensures that our customers and residents of North East Derbyshire can continue to live happily in their homes."
Last month, Rykneld Homes and the Community Safety Partnership took action against a customer on Northside, Tupton following complaints of Anti-Social Behaviour, drug taking and an alleged assault.
Chesterfield Magistrates granted Possession of the property, meaning the tenant can no longer live there.
