Our picturesque seaside town has been ruined by neighbour from hell – we're terrified for our safety | The Sun

RESIDENTS of a seaside town have told how their beauty spot is being ruined by a neighbour from hell.

One local of Bridlington, on the Yorkshire coast, has been making lives a misery in the peaceful haven.

Neighbours had complained of drug and alcohol misuse and loud noise blasting out from a property throughout the night.

They also slammed residents from the home over waste dumped in communal areas, and damage being caused to the property.

Now they have been slapped with a partial closure order for three months after Beverley Magistrates' Court heard neighbours feared for their safety.

It means they will no longer be allowed to have guests over.

The order states that only the currently registered tenant and council officers are allowed inside the property at any time.

Nigel Brignall, antisocial behaviour team manager at the council, said: “Residents living near this property have had to suffer serious nuisance and disorder on a regular basis, sometimes into the early hours, which has made their lives a misery.

“We feel this order is necessary to prevent this behaviour from continuing, to protect those living nearby and ensure their quality of life returns to a good standard. 

“I hope this partial closure order goes some way towards letting residents know the council takes this kind of anti-social behaviour seriously and it will not be tolerated.”

It comes as residents of three neighbouring seaside towns say their picturesque havens are being ruined by soaring house prices due to an influx of rich people.

Thanet has long been a popular destination for holidaymakers and day-trippers thanks to its stunning coastlines, beautiful towns and charming seaside vibe.

But in recent years this corner of Kent – covering Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate – has become a hot spot for property buyers, with house prices rising faster here than in almost any other part of the country.

New numbers from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows the values of homes in the area have soared from £147,950 in 2013 to £318,150 in 2023.

And locals say the rocketing prices is bad news for anyone trying to make Thanet their home.
