Our commitment to tackle anti-social behaviour

Basildon Council is committed to the belief that all residents have the right to enjoy peace, quiet and security in and around their homes.

Basildon Council believes that every resident has a responsibility not to interfere with their neighbours' right to the peaceful enjoyment of their home.

We are also fully committed to ensuring that residents are fully able to enjoy these rights and we recognise that left unchallenged, any anti-social behaviour (ASB) can have a significant negative impact on the lives of our residents.

The Anti-Social Behaviour Team works with Essex Police and the Local Community Safety Partnership, as well as other agencies and local residents, to tackle anti-social behaviour and its causes.

When confronted with anti-social behaviour our Anti-Social Behaviour Team will always recommend trying and work out any problems by talking to those involved rather than taking enforcement action.

However should this fail, we will take all necessary action against those causing an anti-social behaviour problem within a community.

Anti-Social Behaviour Policy

Section 12 of the Anti-social Behaviour Act 2003 introduced Section 218A of the Housing Act 1996, which placed a requirement on all social landlords (local housing authorities, Registered Social landlords and Housing Action Trusts) to prepare and publish statements and summaries of their policies and procedures in relation to Anti-social behaviour.

Basildon Council's Anti-social behaviour policy and procedure has been put in place to ensure that tenants and residents of Basildon can clearly see the commitment that is made by Basildon Council to tackling ASB within the Borough and what happens when Anti-social behaviour is reported. It explains in detail the resources available to tackle Anti-social behaviour and what action Basildon Council can take.
