Police have obtained a Closure Order for an address in Rack Close, Andover under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 after a hearing on 15th July.
The order means that no-one can enter the property for three months, and during this time, it is a criminal offence for anyone to enter the address unless authorised by police.
Drug use and anti-social behaviour had been reported at the address, having a significant effect on those living nearby.
Local Police Community Support Officer Natalie Lock said: “This closure order has been a result of working with Aster Communities Housing Association.”
“We will not tolerate drug use and dealing in the community of Andover and we will work with our partner agencies and the community, using legislation available to us, to disrupt people causing harm and annoyance to the residents of Andover.”
“If you are concerned about drug-related crime where you live, please contact us. The support we receive from local people is vital in helping us make our communities safer and every piece of information is greatly appreciated.”
A spokesperson from Aster Communities Housing Association said: “We will not tolerate drug dealers and users in our properties. We will always work closely with Hampshire Constabulary to resolve these issues as quickly as we can.”
