What happens next?

At the first report stage, we will ask you how you want to be contacted and use this throughout the duration of your anti-social behaviour (ASB) issue.

As we work with you to resolve your ASB issue, we will:

  • agree an action plan with you
  • keep in regular contact with you
  • make it clear when we will next be in contact with you
  • keep all information and records relating to your issue confidential
  • advise you of the initial actions we will take to resolve your issue and what the expected outcome could be

There are a number of follow up actions we can take against those individuals causing nuisance and ASB.

The action taken depends on:

  • Type of incident and the impact on other residents
  • Quality of the evidence and the availability of witnesses and their willingness to provide evidence

Possible enforcement actions
