Three Rivers Secures yet another Closure
18th March 2019
Three Rivers District Council in partnership with Hertfordshire Police and Homegroup have secured a Closure Order at Oakhill Road, Maple Cross, Rickmansworth.
Three Rivers Community Safety Partnership gathered evidence in support of the Order, which was granted by the Magistrates on 13 March 2019, preventing anyone other than the tenant, their support services and emergency services from entering the property for a period of three months. Anyone breaching the order can be arrested. This was following crime and disorder at the premises.
Cllr Roger Seabourne, Lead Member for Community Safety, said “Three Rivers District Council continues to take action against ASB, crime and disorder including cuckooing. We are committed and working in partnership with our residents, the Police and Housing Providers to protect our communities. The closure orders demonstrate how determined we are to provide safe neighbourhoods in Three Rivers."
Three Rivers Community Safety Partnership will continue to take action against those suspected of being involved in drug dealing, crime and cuckooing (preying on the most vulnerable) and we thank the local community in supporting us. It is vital that the public continue to work with us by reporting any suspicious or criminal activity so that we can continue to build up intelligence and take the appropriate action.
Please continue to report Anti-social behaviour on the non-emergency Police number 101 – in an emergency 999 or Three Rivers District Council via my.threerivers.gov.uk
