Tools we use

We take all reports of anti-social behaviour seriously. We have a balanced approach to tackling anti-social behaviour and consider the effects it will have on the victims, witnesses and the community. Our team will try to resolve any problems by using a range of informal and formal methods and take action when appropriate. Eviction is always the last resort.

The range of tools and support methods we use are:

  • Personal visits
  • Joint visits with other agencies such as the Police and Environmental Health
  • Mediation
  • Referrals to other agencies such as Social Services, Environmental Health and health workers
  • Verbal and written warnings
  • Acceptable Behaviour Contracts (ABCs)
  • Parenting Contracts/Orders
  • Demotion Orders
  • Undertakings
  • Possession
  • Civil Injunction
  • Criminal Behaviour Order
