On 30 January 2019 a Partial Closure Order was granted by Truro Magistrate's Court on a property in Trezela Road, Penzance.

The Partial Closure Order is in place for three months from the date of issue.

Access is now restricted to the named tenant of the premises and those who habitually reside at the property.

Dorian Thomas, Anti-Social Behaviour Caseworker at Cornwall Council, said: “The Partial Closure order was applied for in response to information provided by members of the public and agencies involved, showing how the tenant of the address allowed visitors to the property to cause alarm and distress to the community.  

“The tenant failed to manage their tenancy and allowed a number of breaches to occur within their agreement with LiveWest. This included allowing visitors to attend the address and have a free run of the premise and act in a disorderly manner. By allowing this behaviour to occur they also placed family members at risk.

“All agencies involved have worked closely to make this closure a success and improve the quality of life for the other residents within the location.”
