Youth banned from own home for three months

It seems a youth in Leven (Fife) has become the first person in Scotland to be banned from his own home, having been served with a closure order under the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2004. I'm not sure exactly how I feel about such situations - it will no doubt (assuming the youth observes the ban) be at least a temporary improvement for his unfortunate neighbours, but I wonder where he will have gone meantime and what mayhem he may cause there.

In my less 'enlightened' moments I could think of appropriate long-term solutions, but expect that if I put them down in writing I'd risk the strictures of nanny.
