A council tenant whose antisocial behaviour "made life a misery" for neighbours has been banned from their Kingsbury home for three months.
Brent police and the council applied a closure order to the property in Pipers Green following persistent reports of antisocial behaviour.
The tenant cannot enter the property at any time during the three-month ban and the address will remain empty during this time.
On Wednesday (November 15), Brent police tweeted: "Working in partnership with Brent Council we have today implemented a three-month closure order on an address in Kingsbury, following a number of complaints of anti social behaviour."
Brent Council confirmed it is looking to permanently evict the tenant.
A Brent Council spokesman said: "For the last few months the property had been blighted by persistent reports of drug dealing and drug taking, loud music, drunkenness, fighting and criminal damage.
"Neighbours had also reported harassment and intimidation by the high number of visitors to the property."
Councillor Harbi Fara, the lead member for housing and welfare reform at Brent Council, said: "This is a brilliant result for residents and it couldn’t have been done without the joint work between ourselves and the police.
"This individual has made life a misery for their neighbours causing them a great deal of stress and left them fearing for their safety.
"This closure order shows that Brent Council is prepared to protect law abiding residents and that we will take action against tenants that cause anti-social behaviour.”
