Lockdown peace for some Duderstadt residents

Those living near a drug addict in Duderstadt Close, Paganhill (above), who have been regularly woken up in the small hours by the arrival of his supplier, welcomed his eviction.

A housing officer arrived one day with two burly assistants and apparently just said “Out!” and that was it.

Three questions are asked:

  • Why did it take so long to address this illegal and disruptive behaviour?
  • Where did the evicted person go? Was he merely moved on the distress a new set of neighbours?
  • Are there centres where such people can be rehabilitated?

Next post: two more Duderstadt tenants in need of rehabilitation
