THE Llandrindod Neighbourhood Policing Team have been successful in obtaining a closure order on a flat in the spa town, banning people from visiting for three months.
The closure order was granted to Dyfed Powys Police at Llandrindod Magistrates Court last week in connection with Flat 4, Derrymore.
The closure order means no visitors can attend the flat for three months.
The occupants and the flat have been the cause of offensive, anti-social and disorderly behaviour with frequent visitors to the address causing a severe nuisance to the other residents and local community.
The closure order means that there can be no visitors to this premises. Any breaches of the order is deemed a criminal offence and the occupant and those visiting can be arrested, fined or imprisoned.
The purpose of a closure order is to allow the police or local authority to quickly close premises which are being used, or likely to be used, to commit nuisance or disorder.
Radnorshire inspector Adam Ellis said: “This is clear message that we will do all that we can to disrupt criminal behaviour within our communities and protect those who are directly affected by these individuals.
“The use of orders such as these are invaluable and we will continue to adopt and enforce such orders as appropriate.”
