Anti-social behaviour policy and procedure

Approach to tackling ASB

We will continue to work with partner agencies to prevent, and where appropriate, tackle ASB by using a wide range of measures.

The measures to tackle ASB include both informal and formal action. Wherever possible and practicable we will seek early intervention to prevent escalation of ASB such as:

  • warning letters
  • acceptable behaviour contracts (ABCs)
  • mediation
  • positive diversionary activities and targeted individual support
  • formal action such as civil injunctions
  • community protection notice warnings or community protection notices (CPNs)
  • public spaces protection orders (PSPOs)
  • criminal behaviour orders (CBOs) and closure orders may be used for recurring and/or more serious issues
  • participating with community triggers
