Tenants living in a Caerphilly council-owned property have been slapped with a court order after their behaviour caused “nuisance and upset” to neighbours.
They have been banned from receiving visitors for the next three months after the property became “the focus of antisocial behaviour for some considerable time”.
Loud music, abusive language, and late night gatherings were causing “distress” for other residents, Caerphilly County Borough Council reported, adding that previous and “repeated” attempts to curb the problems had “failed to have a lasting impact”.
The council said the property – the location of which was disclosed to the Local Democracy Reporting Service only as being in the “eastern Valleys” area of the county borough – had been served a Closure Order.
Anyone who breaches that order by visiting the property could be arrested. The council said previous incidents of antisocial behaviour there had placed “additional strain” on the emergency services.
“Measures such as this are always a last resort, after all reasonable, necessary and proportionate actions have been taken when our contract holders (tenants) cause nuisance and upset to other residents in the borough”, said Cllr Shayne Cook, the council’s cabinet member for housing.
“The Closure Order will come as welcome news for local residents who have been victims of persistent antisocial behaviour at this property.”
The order was secured by the council’s Tenancy Enforcement Section, which deals with antisocial behaviour in council-owned properties. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
