Anti-social behaviour tackled with Ashbourne eviction

Posted on 9th August 2017

A man and a woman have been evicted from a house in Ashbourne following repeated complaints about anti-social behaviour in the town.

They were evicted from a property on The Green Road on Thursday, July 20 by police officers and court bailiffs.

The action was taken following partnership work between the Safer Derbyshire Dales Community Safety Partnership, Ashbourne Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team and Waterloo Housing Group to address long-term concerns from residents about noise and disorder at the house.

PC Rachel Baggaley of the Ashbourne Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “Everyone should have the right to live in peace and enjoy their homes without the negative effects of anti-social behaviour.

“We hope this eviction will help bring these concerns to an end and reassure the community that this kind of anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated.”

The occupants at the address were also recipients of Community Protection Notices and Warnings under the Anti-Social Behaviour and Police Act 2014.

Karen Cooper, Community Safety Officer at Derbyshire Dales District Council, said: “We are grateful to the residents of The Green Road for coming forward to support us in this instance.  It is only by working in partnership that we can assess and act on persistent anti-social behaviour.”

To report concerns about anti-social behaviour, crime or disorder contact Derbyshire police on 101, the non-emergency number, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
