KEEP OUT: Property sealed off after links to drug dealing and antisocial behaviour

 Published on: 13th August 2020   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

A property in St Albans has been sealed off for three months after a closure order was issued because of drug dealing and antisocial behaviour.

Anyone who enters the property in Ladies Grove, Batchwood, will be prosecuted. 

St Albans City & District Council, which own the property, obtained the closure order from the City’s Magistrates’ Court with support and evidence provided by Hertfordshire police. 

Two women, aged 59 and 31, are currently released under investigation, pending further enquiries. 

Councillor Jacqui Taylor, portfolio holder for housing, inclusion and protection, said they are now looking to regain full possession of the property so it can be rented out to someone on the social housing register.

She said: “Our successful application for a closure order shows we are determined to look after our residents by taking firm action against crime and antisocial behaviour.”

Two women and a man found at the property when the closure order notice was put up were arrested as they had breached the conditions of the closure order.  They have been released under investigation.

Report information online at or call the non-emergency number 101.
