Camborne property 'closed' in anti-social behaviour clamp down

Camborne property 'closed' in anti-social behaviour clamp down

Published by Sarah Yeoman at 6:15am 16th April 2019.

A property in Camborne has been 'closed' as part of an anti-social behaviour clamp down.

Cornwall Council's Anti-Social Behaviour Team, along with Devon and Cornwall Police, applied for and were granted a Premises Closure order for a property in Camborne by Bodmin Magistrates Court on Thursday 4th April 2019.

A full closure order has been issued for 95a Pendarves Street Tuckingmill Camborne, allowing the premises to be 'closed' for three months.

The order is part of a continued crack down on anti-social behaviour and work to create safer communities.

The action followed a series of ongoing reports starting in September 2018 of crime, anti-social behaviour, disorder and domestic disputes at the address.

"The behaviour escalating from the address was totally unacceptable.

"Local residents and members of the community were witnessing violent outbursts and living in fear of harm, resulting in them having to make changes in their lifestyle to reduce the impact of the behaviour.

"We accept many people face challenging times, and we work with them to find an alternative lifestyle.

"However, they must make a commitment to change themselves guided by the support services available in the community.

"If this support and guidance is ignored, we will act accordingly and proportionately in dealing with their behaviour."

Dorian Thomas, from Cornwall Council's Anti-Social Behaviour Team

Cornwall Council's Anti-Social Behaviour Team and Devon & Cornwall Police will continue to work in partnership to tackle anti-social behaviour.

"Devon and Cornwall Police continue to work closely with Cornwall Council's Anti-Social Behaviour Team to ensure that this kind of behaviour does not continue and have an impact on the community.

"It is important that any such issues are reported to police so we are able to take steps to challenge the behaviour.

"The decision to close a property is not taken lightly and this is considered a last resort so residents can have respite from the behaviour."

PCSO Clare Matthews, from Camborne Neighbourhood Team

Residents are encouraged to report anti-social behaviour to the police by using the 101 number or by emailing 101@dc.police.uk

For emergencies, please use 999.
