Closure Order for address in Southend 

A full closure order has been imposed on a property in Barringtons, Sutton Road, Southend-on-Sea, following extreme nuisance behaviour. 

South Essex Homes, Essex Police and Southend-on-Sea City Council successfully applied for the closure order during a hearing at Southend Magistrates' Court on Thursday 28th March 2024.   

This order was made under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. 

A closure order means no-one, other than representatives and/or contractors of Southend-on-Sea City Council or South Essex Homes, can enter the property for a period of three months. 

Anyone caught breaching the order will be committing a criminal offence and could be prosecuted. 

Sarah Lander, Director of Housing Operations at South Essex Homes, said: “Working with Essex Police and other local partner agencies we use a variety of methods to tackle the inappropriate use of properties and ongoing incidents of anti-social behaviour that cause a menace in our communities. 

“This closure order has been secured to help us put a stop to anti-social behaviour that was emanating from this property, impacting on residents’ wellbeing and community safety. 

“We will monitor activity at the address and would urge local residents to report any breaches of the closure order by contacting Essex Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.
