Anti-social behaviour

Community Trigger

If you have already reported 3 incidents of anti-social in the last 6 months to us, the police or your social housing provider and feel that the issues have not been resolved, you can request a Community Trigger review of your case.

What is The Community Trigger

The Community Trigger is part of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. It allows members of the community to ask for a review of the responses to their reports of anti-social behaviour. Once the Community Trigger process has been requested, the relevant agencies, which could include us, the police, health providers and social housing providers, will work together to decide whether any further action can be taken to resolve the case.

The Community Trigger process has been created to ensure that agencies share information and work together to try and resolve anti-social behaviour.

To request a Community Trigger review please contact us:

Please note that the Community Trigger process is not for making a complaint or reporting new anti-social behaviour incidents.
