ANTI-social behaviour at two properties in Bournemouth have ‘significantly impacted’ neighbours, say BCP Council.

Flat 6 at 29 St Albans Crescent and 12 Cunningham Place both reportedly experienced ‘serious nuisance and disorder’.

As reported, closure orders were granted for both properties on Thursday, June 27.

The Cunningham Place property was handed a partial premises closure order, while the St Albans Crescent flat received a full premises closure order. BCP Council had applied for the orders under section 80 of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

It had served a notice to the Cunningham Place property on June 12, and the St Albans Crescent flat on June 26.

Now, BCP Council has revealed the applications were part of ‘multi-agency approaches’ to tackle ‘serious nuisance and disorder’ at the homes which had been ‘significantly impacting on local residents’.

Dorset Police was involved with both properties, with Sovereign Housing Association also assisting with the St Albans Crescent approach.

A spokesperson for BCP Council said: “This action demonstrates how the council and partner agencies are committed to taking action to protect victims and communities from serious nuisance and disorder.

"We will always use the tools and powers available to us and by obtaining this closure order, it shows we will act on issues which are having a detrimental impact on residents and reduce anti-social behaviour in our communities.

“Criminal and anti-social behaviour activity has no place in the BCP area.”

Access to the properties will be prohibited to everyone except employees, agents and contractors of BCP Council, support services, the police and other emergency services, and any other specified individuals.

Court records show the occupants of 12 Cunningham Place oppose the closure order.

The BCP Council spokesperson added: “If residents are experiencing anti-social behaviour, we encourage them to report to the Police by calling 101 and if there are ongoing concerns, to contact the ASB team at”
