Anti Social Behaviour
Report it online
To progress Anti-Social Behaviour Complaints, witnesses need to be established therefore complaints made which do not contain the witness’s true name and contact details cannot be accepted.
What We Do
Not all complaints about acts of anti-social behaviour go as far as the courts, so we believe the most effective way to tackle anti-social behaviour is to stop it happening in the first place.
However, Broxtowe Borough Council's Legal Team will utilise a range of legal interventions to protect vulnerable individuals and communities whenever informal interventions fail, dependant on relevant up-to-date evidence being available to prove the offence and satisfy the courts. The legal team of the council prepare court files and issue a variety of enforcement actions as well as providing general advice and assistance to all departments involved in anti-social behaviour prevention and intervention.
Public Spaces Protection Orders
Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPO) were brought in under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. (Opens in a New Window)
PSPOs are intended to deal with any particular nuisance issues within a defined area that are detrimental to the local community's quality of life. This is achieved by imposing conditions on the use of a defined area which applies to everyone.
