Four properties closed over drug and anti-social behaviour concerns

Four properties on Fairfield Road in Buxton have been closed after persistent reports of drugs and anti-social behaviour.

Four properties on Fairfield Road in Buxton have been closed after persistent reports of drugs and anti-social behaviour.

Magistrates in Derby granted a three-month closure order on the addresses yesterday, Thursday 13 June.

Officers from the Buxton Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team gathered evidence over a number of months of local concerns, incidents and action taken in the area.

Support is being offered to those affected by the closure order by partnership agencies, including High Peak Borough Council.

Three people were also arrested on Fairfield Road on the same day.

A 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of a Section 5 Public Order Offence, a 27-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of theft from a shop and breach of a Criminal Behaviour Order and a 47-year-old was arrested on suspicion of failing to appear at court.

Team Sergeant Patrick Haley said: “Anti-social behaviour, crime and disorder have a significant impact on local residents and the wider community, and we hope that this action will help ease the concerns and drive these issues out of the area.

“We are grateful for the support of the community which has been critical in helping us secure this action, building up the picture of the disorder which has been affecting them over recent months.”

The work is part of a long-term campaign by police and partner agencies known as Project Unity, which follows the Home Office’s ‘Clear Hold Build’ method.

Sgt. Haley added: “We will continue to actively target anti-social behaviour, crime and drug related activity and send the message that this type of behaviour won’t be tolerated.”

 “I would urge anyone with concerns to report them to the police so that we can investigate and take appropriate action where necessary.”

All four properties are closed until 13 September 2024 and anyone who breaches the closure order without reasonable excuse is a criminal offence punishable with imprisonment and/or a fine.
