Great Yarmouth Police will be holding a street briefing after a flat in the town was shut down due to illegal drug activity.
In a tweet, the police said they would be conducting the briefing in the vicinity of 76 Ordnance Road.
The briefing will take place at 1pm on Monday, July 9.
The statement reads: “Please feel free to come along to meet the team and share any concerns you and your families may have.”
The property, managed by Great Yarmouth Borough Council, has been a hotbed for drug use and anti-social behaviour for several months say the council and police.
The council was successful in obtaining a closure order from the town’s magistrates court, after securing evidence of drugs misuse and other anti-social behaviour in the flat.
A notice order pinned to the door of the sealed of flat says: “A person has engaged (or if the order is not made) is likely to engage in disorderly, offensive criminal behaviour on the premises.
