Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill: Measures for tackling ASB

The Commission decided to conduct a review of the range of new powers introduced by the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

The purpose of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill: Measures for tackling ASB review is to understand the legislative changes, policy, and performance of the ASB service and to gain an understanding of new measures available to the council to tackle ASB. The review will also seek to understand how to balance enforcement and support, how the new powers are being used and whether they have improved responses to reports of ASB and whether Councillors, MPs and Assembly Members, are aware of these measures and whether they are being satisfactorily used to tackle ASB.
