On 18th February 2016 Surrey Police report,
Closure order extended on Camberley property A Closure Order obtained on a property in Camberley has been extended for a further three months after reports associated with serious nuisance and anti-social behaviour. The three month extension to the order at 39 Turf Hill Road was granted after a hearing on 9 February at South West Surrey Magistrate’s Court in Guildford.
The original order was granted on 12 November 2015 after magistrates heard how residents lives had been impacted by the behaviour of the occupants, which made those nearby, including families with young children feel threatened and fearful. Surrey Heath Neighbourhood Inspector Bob Darkens said: “The impact of the occupants’ behaviour on their neighbours cannot be underestimated – they have caused people to feel intimidated and frightened in their own neighbourhood. This extended order, which was obtained in partnership with Accent Group Housing Association, should help the estate continue to be a peaceful, enjoyable place to live and bring up families and demonstrates Surrey Police will not stand by while people make the lives of others a misery.”
The three month extension order will allow residents to enjoy peace of mind and to enable the housing association to seek repossession of the property. The premise remains boarded up as a result of the notification with notices informing the public it is closed to protect the neighbourhood from further acts of anti-social behaviour.
The order was granted with immediate effect under Part 4 Chapter 3 Section 80 of the ASB Crime and Policing Act and the property will be sealed for a further three month period providing respite for the community. The order is in place until 8 May 2016 and anyone seen entering the property will be arrested and is liable is liable to receive a fine or face a custodial sentence for breaching the order.
