People living in a road in Uxbridge are enjoying a return to peace and quiet after a home belonging to an antisocial neighbour was issued with a closure order.
The property, in Cobden Close, was served the three-month order at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court on Friday (February 16) after its resident made the lives of her neighbours a misery for two years.
It has now been boarded up and the antisocial woman is unable to access it.
Neighbours have had to deal with aggressive and abusive groups of males congregating inside and outside the property behaving in a threatening manner, the court heard.
Loud music and late-night parties lasting until the early hours of the morning were also common.
Police and Hillingdon Council tried to work with the resident to help her with her problems but despite their efforts she continued to harass her neighbours.
PC Barry Cilia, from Hillingdon Police, said: “This resident chose a lifestyle of anti-social behaviour which was affecting others within the community. Despite all our efforts to help her, she continued to create an unsafe and unpleasant environment for those living near her.“I hope this closure order sends a clear message to those who follow in her footsteps that if you continue to engage in anti-social behaviour you risk losing your home.”
