A property in Pitsmoor at the centre of local drug dealing and anti-social behaviour (ASB) has been closed down for three months from today (4 April). 

Officers have been attending incidents at a flat on Carwood Way since last October, with reports of people gathering at the property and causing problems for neighbouring homes. 

After extensive intelligence gathering and monitoring activity at the flat, the Burngreave Neighbourhood Policing Team executed a warrant at the end of February 2019. 

An amount of class A drugs was seized and two people were arrested. They remain under investigation.

Since then, neighbourhood officers have worked closely with the force’s ASB team and Sheffield City Council with the aim of securing a closure order for the address. 

The order was approved by Sheffield Magistrates Court today and will run for three months, meaning the property will be closed and the current tenant evicted. 

Investigating Officer PC Dave Ward said he was pleased with the result. He added: “This closure order is a result of tireless work by our neighbourhood team, which is worth shouting about - but the relationship we have with both our colleagues in the ASB team and the local authority should not be underestimated either. 

“We hope that neighbouring properties will be pleased and hopefully it’ll have a positive impact on residents’ quality of life on the Carwood estate.”
