A Closure Order has been granted on a property owned by Caerphilly County Borough Council in the Pontlottyn area, to tackle persistent anti-social behaviour and criminal activity.

Officers from the Council’s Tenancy Enforcement Section worked in partnership with Gwent Police and local residents to make the application to Court for the Closure Order.

A three-month Closure Order was granted at Newport Magistrates Court on Thursday 15th July 2021 and will remain in force until 14th October 2021.  This means that during this period the property is no longer accessible to anyone, including the tenant.  The tenant is being supported by the Council.

Cllr Lisa Phipps, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, said “The Closure Order will come as welcome news to many local residents who had been the victims of continual anti-social behaviour and nuisance arising from this property.  Evidence from residents is key in helping us tackle cases such as this and I’d like to thank those who came forward and worked with our Officers to help reach this resolution.”

The Tenancy Enforcement Section deals with incidents of anti-social behaviour or nuisance either experienced by Council tenants or as a result of someone living in Council property.
