Anti Social Behaviour

The local authority will provide support and assistance to residents who are victims of anti-social behaviour (ASB) and where necessary take appropriate actions in conjunction with other agencies, including the Police. We work closely with the police to tackle ASB and as such we will share relevant and appropriate information.

Report ASB

Review an ASB or hate case

A Community Trigger gives victims and communities the right to request a review of an ongoing anti-social behaviour or hate incident that you believe has not been adequately dealt with.

Community Triggers can be raised by victims or representatives of victims (where written consent is provided by the victim), and victims can be individuals or businesses.

A request to activate a Community Trigger can be made if, within the last six months if you are dissatisfied with the response from agencies and:

  • You (as an individual) have complained to the Council, Police or a Registered Housing Provider (social landlord) about three separate incidents of anti-social behaviour within your area
  • Three individuals in your local community have complained separately to the Council, Police or Registered Housing Provider (social landlord) about the same incident of anti-social behaviour
  • You have been a victim of a hate incident,

You must have made your initial complaint of anti-social behaviour within one calendar month of the incident occurring for a Community Trigger to be considered.

Report a community trigger

When you complete the Community Trigger Reporting Form we will ask you for:

  • Details of the incident(s), including any reference numbers
  • Where it/they took place
  • What action has been taken
  • Your contact details

Hard copies should be returned to Blaby District Council's Community Services team.

Applications will be rejected if they are identified as prejudicial, discriminatory, malicious, unreasonable, vexatious or frivolous.

After reporting

Your request will be acknowledged within five working days.

Agencies will be asked to provide details of any reports you have made to them which relate to this application. This process will take up to 14 days and will confirm whether you meet the criteria for activation of a formal review.

If your application does not meet the threshold for a full review, you will be provided with the reason why and given information regarding what you can do next.

If the threshold is met, you will be informed and the review will take up to 28 days from the date of that decision. You will be provided with further details of what this entails at that time.

In the meantime, if you need to report any further anti-social behaviour or hate-related incidents, please report it.

The Community Trigger does not replace the existing complaints procedure. You still have the right to complain to the Ombudsman or Independent Office for Police Conduct if you are unhappy about the service you have received. See more by viewing the Complaints Procedure.
