Three Rivers District Council is against Drugs and Anti-Social Behaviour

17th June 2020

Three Rivers District Council has been successful in securing a full Closure Order at St Andrews Terrace South Oxhey under the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014. 

Three Rivers worked in partnership with Hertfordshire Police to gather evidence in support of the Closure Order. The Council and Police received numerous complaints from members of the community reporting serious disorder at the address, suspected drug use and drug dealing, and noise disturbance. 

The Closure Order was granted at St Albans Magistrates’ Court, on Thursday 4 June 2020.  No-one is allowed to enter the property for the next three months under this Order including the tenant. 

Three Rivers urge their residents to keep helping them in the fight against drugs and associated Anti-social Behaviour (ASB). They continue to work closely with partner agencies to put a permanent stop to these crimes. Securing these Closure Orders is a significant part of partnership working closely together to achieve these positive outcomes. 

Cllr Roger Seabourne, Lead Member for Community Safety and Partnerships, said: “We work collaboratively with all our partners, value our close working relationship. This leads to us producing these positive results and provide a good precedent for future partnership working. Please do continue to report any concerns via the non-emergency number 101, or, if a crime or ASB is in progress to dial 999. We want you to stay alert and stay safe.”
