Closure order at problematic Hull address

The Hull Central Neighbourhood team have enforced a notice of closure at a problematic property on Coltman Street in Hull.

It is alleged that the address has been linked to organised crime and drugs.

Its occupants have continually caused problems for local residents.

Following weeks of evidence collection, the closure order application was heard and granted at Beverley Magistrates Court on Thursday 16 July.

Officers for Humberside Police attended on Saturday 18 July to evict the tenant and secure the property.

Earlier enforcement action had taken place at the property, but the anti-social behaviour and criminality had continued.

The application for a full closure order was subsequently made, and was primarily based on information supplied by the community.

Central Neighbourhood Beat Manager, PC Tim McGowan, said:

“We have been working closely with our community gathering evidence and providing reassurance following reports of anti-social behaviour and drug dealing repeatedly occurring at this address.

“The community have been very supportive of the action we’ve been taking to try and combat the criminal and nuisance behaviour at this problem property, and we hope that they welcome the news of the closure order being granted and tenant being evicted.

“We have had a very visible patrol presence in the area and had recently completed two misuse of drugs act warrants at the property, following the reports of drug dealing taking place.

“Sizable quantities of cash and Class A drugs were found and seized, and two people were arrested and have been released under investigation as we continue those investigations.

“The team and I would like to thank the community for working with us and would encourage anyone else who has anything to report with regards to ASB or criminality in their area to speak to their Neighbourhood teams on their patrols or call 101.

“We will take whatever action is required to stop criminal or problem behaviour and make our communities feel safer.”

Nobody will be permitted to reside or visit the address for the next three months.
