Update on 46 Ovenhouse Lane, Bollingon

In January, Peaks & Plains worked closely with Cheshire Constabulary to close down a home causing antisocial behaviour in Bollington. Until recently, the property has been in the control of the police – but we’re eager to turn the home around.

Due to long term antisocial behaviour documented by our work with Cheshire Constabulary, Crewe Magistrates Court issued a court order for the closure of a home on Ovenhouse Lane. This involved boarding up the windows and doors of the home for three months.

Since January, the property has been controlled by the police. It was illegal to enter the home – even Peaks & Plains staff couldn’t start work on the property.

We’ve worked closely with the courts to get the house back into our control. We're extremely eager to turn this house around as quickly as possible and relet it to suitable new tenants in housing need.

David Squires, our Head of Customer Experience, said that 'we’re delighted that the property is back in our control, and we are determined to ensure that it is let to a family who will value the opportunity to rent from us. Once the property is ready, we’re looking to relet the home to somebody who can make the most of the wonderful community in Bollington’.
