A closure order has been given to a property in Chesham in a bid to tackle “persistent” anti-social behaviour at the house.

High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court granted the order on 60 Cresswell Road for three months.

Police said it was to protect the tenants of the property and neighbours from “persistent” anti-social behaviour and disorder visitors to the house had caused over the past six months.

The order prevents anyone other than the tenant and those specifically named on the order to enter the property.

Anyone not named who enters the house will commit a criminal offence which can be punishable by imprisonment.

PC Vicki Kerr, of Chiltern and South Bucks problem solving team, based at Amersham police station, who applied for the closure order, said: “I am confident that with the order in place the sort of behaviour that residents have had to put up with will now cease and it will send a very clear message that we will not tolerate behaviour which impacts on the quality of life of others and will work with our partner agencies to achieve this.

“We would advise members of the public to report instances of anti-social behaviour by calling 101 or contacting the neighbourhood policing team.”
