Following three closure orders last week, East Riding of Yorkshire Council has obtained a further closure order on a council-owned property on Bessingby Gate in Bridlington, following activity by Humberside Police, which recently exercised warrants for drug related organised crime at the properties, as part of Operation Shield.

In addition to the order, the tenant was ordered to pay £567 costs direct to the council.

The closure order granted by Beverley magistrates yesterday (Wednesday 4th October), means that no one can enter the property for three months, other than officers from the council, police, other emergency services or utility providers.

The council has also served Notice Seeking Possession on the tenant and intends to seek full possession through the courts.

Anyone who enters or stays on the premises without reasonable excuse can be fined, imprisoned or both.

Yesterday (Wednesday 4th October) a member of the council’s anti-social behaviour team served the order and notice with officers from Humberside Police.

Councillor Leo Hammond, the council’s portfolio holder for planning, communities and public protection, said: “Our officers will continue to work together with Humberside Police to protect our residents and communities they live in from serious nuisance caused by people dealing drugs and by users coming to their house throughout the day and night.

“I urge anyone involved in dealing to think twice and for those going to get drugs, to seek help and support”.

“I encourage anyone experiencing anti-social behaviour to report it to us.”
