The possession order for 64 St. Anne’s Road, Chertsey was granted by North Surrey Magistrates Court (Staines) on 15 May on the grounds that the premise has been used in connection with anti-social behaviour and drugs use.
On Monday, 7 July officers from both Surrey Police and Runnymede Borough Council attended the property to carry out the eviction. The property was secured and the locks changed.
Runnymede Neighbourhood Specialist Officer, Dave Stockle, said: “This is a great conclusion to a situation that has been on-going for several months another success story where anti-social behaviour had caused a major problem in the surrounding community.
“This action demonstrates that behaviour of this nature will not be tolerated within our communities and is another example of excellent partnership working between Surrey Police and Runnymede Borough Council.
“The occupant had been causing problems in the neighbourhood for many years and the information and feedback we received from local residents was one of the major contributing factor behind this success – hopefully this will allow them to enjoy the peace and quiet which they are entitled to.
“I would also like to appeal to members of the public to get in touch with Surrey Police if they suffer from, or have information about anti-social behaviour in their area. Local support is key in bring those responsible to justice.”
