Responding to Reports of ASB

 

We group our responses into 3 categories so that we prioritise our work. How we categorise reports of ASB is based on the risk the incidents pose to the person affected or witness, and what type of ASB they are reporting. If you report a category 3, low severity case, we may not class it as anti-social behaviour, but we will still take action resolve the issue.

How we work with people who cause nuisance and ASB?

 

We recognise that some people who cause nuisance or ASB may be experiencing problems themselves. We are committed to working with people to help them address their behaviour and access the right support to do this. We use a number of different methods and seek to ensure people can stay in their homes and be successful members of the community.

 

In serious and persistent cases we may seek legal action, but this is always a last resort. When we decide to do this we will work with the people affected and provide support and guidance.
