A Partial Closure Order has been issued by South Derbyshire Magistrates Court for a period of 3 months, on a property on Windsor Court, Long Eaton. This has been served following repeated reports of drug related anti-social behaviour.

The Partial Closure conditions state that no one other than the occupant, a worker from the emergency services, a medical practitioner or an employee from EMH homes is allowed to enter the property. This is in effect until 23:59 on 14/02/23. A copy of the order has been attached to the door of the property involved outlining the conditions.

It is a criminal offence to enter this property without lawful reason. Anyone breaching the order could be arrested and, if found guilty, could face a custodial sentence and / or fine. 

The partial Closure Order has been implemented to help safeguard local residents & to reduce drug related anti-social behaviour in this area. 

Sergeant Carlile, from the Long Eaton Safer Neighbourhood Team speaking about the partial closure notice said: "We have worked closely with partner agencies over a long period of time to provide safeguarding and support to the tenant at this address. Despite this, the issues continued. We have to balance the needs of the individual alongside those of the wider community. The impact of the issues at this address should not be under-estimated. This partial closure gives the opportunity for further support to the occupant and is a firm message that this behaviour will not be tolerated. If the partial closure is not adhered to, we will return to the court and apply for a full closure order, as we have with a number of other properties in Long Eaton linked to drug supply and anti-social behaviour.

No doubt the closure of this house will come as a huge relief to those in the local community who have been subjected to the unacceptable behaviour of those who use the property. We would like to thank the community for their support, and we hope this prompt action reassures the area that we are committed to make Long Eaton a safe place to live"
