ASB Case Review

The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 has introduced the Anti-Social Behaviour Case Review as a new measure designed to give victims and communities the ability to demand action by requesting a review of their ASB case.

If you are a resident of the Braintree District you can now request an Anti-Social Behaviour Case Review if you feel that agencies have not adequately responded to ASB reports.

You can request an ASB Case Review if:

  • If you have reported Anti-Social Behaviour to Braintree District Council, Essex Police or Housing Provider 3 or more times in the last 6 months
  • If you have reported a Hate Crime Incident to Braintree District Council, Essex Police or Housing Provider once in the last 6 months
  • The reports of Anti-Social Behaviour or Hate Crime have been made within one month of the alleged incident taking place
