Anti Social Behaviour
Housing Authorities and other social landlords have certain powers to deal with anti-social behaviour. The following links to policies and procedures, the 'Statement' and 'Summary' documents, outline the Housing Service commitment to tackling anti-social behaviour and have been produced in consultation with the Residents and Councillors from the Anti-Social Behaviour Forum.
The Housing Service firmly believes that by being flexible in our response to anti-social behaviour, we will proactively apply a variety of appropriate solutions, sometimes simultaneously, and assist in working towards a better quality of life for our residents.
