Anti-social behaviour case review

If someone has reported Anti-Social Behaviour but no action has been taken, you can request an anti-social behaviour case review.

About the anti-social behaviour case review

Anti-social behaviour can have an overwhelming impact on its victims and, in some cases, on the wider community. Anti-social behaviour is defined as conduct that has caused, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress to any person.

If you are a victim of persistent anti-social behaviour and you have already reported this to any of the main responsible agencies (such as the council, police, housing provider) you can request a review of your case to find out if further action can be taken to resolve the ongoing anti-social behaviour. 

The anti-social case review won’t review concerns about council services. If you have a complaint about a council service please use the our complaints procedure.

How it works:

  • You have reported three separate, but related incidents to either the local authority, police or housing provider within six months before the application, and the anti-social behaviour still persists and there has been either no, or an inadequate response from agencies OR
  • A senior manager decides that a case review is necessary to safeguard a vulnerable victim of anti social behaviour or identifies a case that would benefit from the process and would meet the threshold regardless of whether an application has been received or not

Who can make an application

You can make an application if you are:

  • a victim – individual person, business or community group
  • a third party who can make an application for a case review on behalf of a victim, with their consent. This can include a friend, relative, carer, councillor, Member of Parliament, or another professional person
  • a senior manager within Westmorland and Furness Council who decides that case review is necessary to safeguard a vulnerable victim of anti-social behaviour
