A property in Cobham which was closed by police last year has been repossessed by Elmbridge Housing Trust.

Neighbours of 46 Queens Court Ride suffered months of persistent antisocial behaviour from the former occupants and visitors before the home was closed by Surrey Police on November 29.

The former occupants will not be able to return to the property after Kingston County Court ruled Elmbridge Housing Trust was entitled to repossess the property.

PCSO Hollie Iribar said: “I can honestly say that since number 46 has closed there has been a noticeable difference in the road. The numbers of residents who are now prepared to speak to us and work with us, since the property was repossessed, is very noticeable.

“I hope the action taken against the tenants demonstrates that Surrey Police and partner agencies will not tolerate antisocial behaviour and reinforces our commitment to ensuring Elmbridge remains a pleasant place to live and work.”

Anyone who wants to report or discuss antisocial behaviour in their area should contact their safer neighbourhood team on 101.
