Neighbours have spoken of the ‘non stop trouble’ they have endured from a home which is now subject to a police closure order.

The property in Keats Close, Aylesbury, was issued with a closure notice on January 6 – the first of its kind in Bucks – to ban visitors to the house.

The notice prevents anyone other than the householders visiting the property.

It is unclear who lives at the property, as neighbours say there were so many people arriving and leaving at all hours of the day and night.

No-one was home when The Bucks Herald called.

One neighbour, who wished to remain anonymous, said there had been ‘non stop’ trouble from the property since his family moved to the street 18 months ago.

He said: “There’s been police raids and noise all hours of the morning and night, especially in the summer.

He has two young children and a newborn baby, but the constant anti-social behaviour has forced him to look elsewhere for a home.

He said: “We’ve been saving for a deposit and we’ve just got enough, so we’ll be moving in the next few months.

“We have young children but we’ve never let them out the front to play because they had this pitbull type dog they would let out.

“It kept my partner from going outside, she’d call me and say ‘they’ve let the dog out again’.

“I’ve come home from work before and it’s attacked the van. I told them the next time I wouldn’t stop driving.”

Another Keats Close resident has only been living in their new property three months, but has already experienced trouble.

She said: “There is constant police activity down here. One night, this bloke was outside our house shouting and kept throwing stones at my sister’s window. She was too scared to sleep that night.

“Another time, we had a man come to our door selling meat from a rucksack. It was a bit weird.”

The closure notice expired yesterday when police were due to apply to High Wycombe Magistrates Court for a three month closure order on the property.

The case was adjourned but the closure notice has been extended for two weeks, with another court hearing scheduled for January 21.
