Partial closure order obtained for address in Endofield Close

A Partial closure order has been obtained for address in Fareham


The Fareham local Neighbourhood Policing Team have been working in partnership with Fareham Borough Council, who has secured a partial closure order for an address in Endofield Close, Fareham, under Section 80 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime & Policing Act.


The three-month partial closure order, which came into effect on Thursday, means that nobody aside from the occupant will be allowed to enter or remain at the address for the next three months. If they do, they will be committing a criminal offence and can be arrested. 


Police applied for the order to address concerns around suspected drugs activity and anti-social behaviour.


The order will also help partner agencies to positively engage with the occupant to benefit everybody living in the area.


PC Matt Jones from the Fareham Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “We’ve taken this step having received a number of reports in recent months about anti-social behaviour and suspected drugs activity at the address.


“The activities of those visiting this address have had an enormous impact on the local community which is why we worked in partnership with Fareham Borough Council to take action.  


“We would like to thank the local community for their help and patience while we worked with partners to gather the evidence needed to secure this partial closure order”. 


“We work closely with partners to tackle anti-social behaviour, and anyone concerned about this sort of activity where they live should contact their neighbourhood policing team on 101 or contact us via our online reporting tool: https://www.hampshire.police.uk/ro/report/asb/asb/report-antisocial-behaviour/ “
