The Upper Brockley Road three to remain closed until 2013

The police say:

Lewisham Police and Lewisham Council were successful in their application to Bromley Magistrates Court for three premises on Upper Brockley Road to remain closed for a further three months.

Supercuts, the Honey Pot and Gold Crest will remain closed following numerous allegations of disorder, nuisance and anti social behaviour to surrounding neighbours and members of the public.

On 01.08.12 using closure powers under part 1A, Section 11A of the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003 Brockley Safer Neighbourhoods Team and Lewisham Borough Crime Reduction Service had successfully applied at the time to have Supercuts, the Honey Pot and Gold Crest closed for three months, but today's ruling means that all three premises will now be closed till the 25th January 2013.

The closure is as a result of numerous repeated incidents recorded including, drug taking, disorder and anti social behaviour.

Police Sergeant Jon Biddle, Brockley Safer Neighbourhoods Team:

"Since the initial closure orders were granted back in August we have seen a significant reduction in the number of complaints of anti social behaviour in this area. The majority of residents fully support the action that we have taken, this closure is part of our ongoing commitment to combat anti social behaviour and the drugs misuse associated with these three premises. With the properties now being closed for a further three months I hope the residents can continue to enjoy the peace and quiet they deserve.”
