Anti-social behaviour can be a real cause for concern. It doesn’t just make life unpleasant, it holds back the regeneration of disadvantaged areas and creates an environment where more serious crime can take hold.

Types of anti social behaviour that can be reported using this form are:

  • Begging
  • Intimidation/bullying

The ASB Case Review is not for reporting new cases of antisocial behaviour and this should be done using the ASB report form found on the NELC web page. The purpose of the ASB Case Review is to review closed cases where you the customer feel that your report was not dealt with appropriately. Any person can request a review for instances of anti-social behaviour they have suffered or request a review on behalf of another person. The criteria for a review to take place is outlined below.

If you have suffered three or more instances of anti-social behaviour in the last six months and you believe that you have not received a reasonable response to your complaints you can request that these cases are reviewed under the Anti-social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014. The ASB Case Review does not replace our complaint procedure nor the complaints procedure of our partners in Humberside Police or Social Housing but brings together agencies who work together to ensure that a joined-up approach is implemented to find a solution.

All case review requests will be assessed by a number of key people within the partnership to agree that the criteria set within the ASB Crime and Policing Act is met. A single point of contact will be appointed, and they have the responsibility to keep you updated with what is happening. We aim to have the matter resolved within 28 days where possible. The result of the review will be given to you in writing as well as verbally by your point of contact.

If you are still not satisfied with the outcome that has been reached you can request an appeal to the Community Safety Partnership who will again review the response that has been given.

All ASB Case Reviews and their outcomes are reported to the Community Safety Partnership Board and the Police and Crime Commissioner.

In April 2015 power to control the consumption of alcohol across seven North East Lincolnshire wards: West Marsh, East Marsh, Park, Heneage, Sidney Sussex, Croft Baker and South. The order means that a request can be made to individuals or groups to stop drinking or hand over alcohol if they involved in drinking related anti-social behaviour. If they refuse to do so they could be served with a fixed penalty notice of £100. For more information read our Public Space Protection Order FAQs (PDF)

There are already seven ward based “controlled drinking zone” Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) in place across North East Lincolnshire. In January 2017, our public consultation identified anti-social behaviour as the public’s number one concern and as having the largest negative impact on a community or neighbourhood if left unaddressed.

Following on from the Cabinet decision in October 2017 to support a wider intelligence led, Placed Based approach around introducing new PSPOs in defined geographical areas covering a wider range of prohibitions where evidentially appropriate,  a further nine PSPOs have been introduced in North East Lincolnshire. These include seven PSPOs to curb recurring and unreasonable anti-social behaviour within small defined areas, and two borough wide PSPOs to cover dog fouling and dog control zones.

If a Police Constable or authorised person witnesses somebody behaving or displaying any behaviour that is prohibited then they can ask them to leave that area and not return within a 24 hour period. The details of the incident will be recorded and sent to the appropriate department within the council. They will then look into the evidence provided and, if appropriate, a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) of £100 will be issued. Failure to make payment could result in a fine of up to £1,000 at the Magistrates Court.

CPW – Community Protection Warnings
CPN – Community Protection Notices
FPN – Fixed Penalty Notices

The Community Protection Warning and Notice are just one of the tools that are used to address a pattern of unacceptable behaviour. Low numbers are not an indication that nothing is being done to address a problem more that a perpetrator is taking notice from an earlier informal warning or is being dealt with by other means.
