On 22 September, Merseyside Police alongside SLH sent out a strong message to local residents in South Liverpool, by closing down a property in Speke which had become a hub of criminality and anti-social behaviour.
The occupants of the property in Prenton Green were removed and the building was sealed by Merseyside Police under a closure order which lasts for 12 weeks. The joint action is just the latest example of South Liverpool Homes’ zero-tolerance approach to anti-social behaviour in their neighbourhoods.
“Anti-social behaviour and criminality, if not managed properly, can cause a decline in our neighbourhoods and this is something that we will not tolerate,” said South Liverpool Homes Community Safety Manager Sharon Marsh.
“We will continue to tackle ASB in the communities in which we live and work to support the long-term sustainability of our neighbourhoods.”
The closure order means that no-one can enter the property for three months and supports SLH’s aim of keeping its neighbourhoods safe and happy places.
South Liverpool Homes also hopes that this course of action will reassure the community that information received is acted upon.
