Sanctuary Housing has worked with Merseyside Police to make Liverpool safer, following reports of antisocial behaviour in Bootle.
The leading housing provider has seen a closure order granted on one of its properties in the area following incidents linked to the address and nearby South Park by working with officers from the South Sefton Neighbourhood team.
Granted on Friday 5 August, with the property boarded up on Tuesday 9 August, the order will remain in place for three months, expiring on 4 November 2016.
Anyone now found on the premises, outside those specified in the closure order, will be subject to arrest by Merseyside Police.
Sanctuary’s operations manager Julia Nundy said: “We’re pleased to have worked with Merseyside Police to obtain the closure order and would like to say a huge thank you to our residents in Bootle for their help in making the community safer for everyone.
“We have zero tolerance for antisocial behaviour and when these concerns were brought to light, we were keen to address the situation with the Police as soon as possible and make the area safer for everyone.
“We will continue to work closely with the police and council to improve community safety.”
