CAERPHILLY County Borough Council has successfully obtained a Closure Order on a "problem property" in Caerphilly.

The order, executed under Section 80 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2015 was imposed on a property in Plas Thomas, Caerphilly on Friday, September 8 by Newport magistrates.

The premises will now be closed for three months and the unauthorised occupiers will not be permitted to re-occupy the property.

The council had received repeated reports of nuisance and anti-social behaviour at the property, including concerns about a number of unauthorised occupiers, noise, disorderly behaviour and property damage.

The council’s Tenancy Enforcement Section worked alongside residents and partner agencies, including the Safer Caerphilly Partnership, Police, Adult Social Services Team, the council’s Legal Department and Environmental Health to prepare evidence to present to magistrates when submitting the application.

Cllr Lisa Phipps, the council cabinet member for Homes and Places, said: “The incidents taking place at this property were having a negative impact on the local community.

“The Closure Order was necessary to prevent any further incidents of nuisance or disorder taking place.

“On behalf of the council, I’d like to thank our partner agencies and the residents who worked with our Tenancy Enforcement Section; their involvement was key in bringing about this positive outcome.”
