All social landlords are required to prepare and publish policies in relation to anti-social behaviour (hereafter ASB) and Hate Crime.
This document fulfils the legal requirements and is designed to give a clear statement of our approach to anti-social behaviour. The policy is intended to provide clarity of the council’s approach in addressing ASB/Hate Crime and helping to ensure that our neighbourhoods are safe and welcoming places to live.
Our aim is to resolve incidents of ASB/Hate Crime before they escalate, intervene appropriately where we can, and enforce the tenancy conditions relating to ASB/Hate Crime when required. We will put into in place, where possible, appropriate support mechanisms for both victims of ASB/Hate Crime and the perpetrators of ASB/Hate Crime where they are deemed to be vulnerable.
