We are well aware that where anti-social behaviour is not dealt with effectively it can have a significant impact on victims and, in some cases, on the wider community.
The Community Trigger allows you to ask the Community Safety Partnership to review the responses to your complaints of anti-social behaviour that you feel have not been dealt with.
What is the Community Trigger?
The ‘Community Trigger’ (also known as the ASB Case Review) was introduced in 2014 gives victims of persistent anti-social behaviour reported to the council, police or housing provider the right to request a review of their case.
The threshold in Newham is about the incidents reported, not whether the agency responded, and will amount to 3 complaints in the past six months.
