Anti-social behaviour strategy consultation

Anti-social behaviour strategy consultation

Residents, businesses and community groups were asked to have their say on a new draft strategy which sets out how the council will tackle anti-social behaviour in Chesterfield.

A greater focus on prevention and early intervention is at the heart of the draft strategy, which outlines how the council will work with partners to address the root causes of anti-social behaviour and help limit the impact on local communities.

The draft strategy applies to all council services involved in responding to anti-social behaviour including the legal service, the housing service, environmental protection, private sector housing, planning and the community safety team. It seeks to ensure consistency of approach including the use of the various powers and responsibilities each service area has.

The new single strategy for the whole authority provides a clear structured approach from the strategic to operational levels. It also outlines how the council will work with other key stakeholders to manage and reduce anti-social behaviour.

The key principles of the new anti-social behaviour strategy are:

  • Early intervention and prevention
  • Enforcement
  • Diversion
  • Communication
