Anti-Social Behaviour Policy

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


To approve an ASB policy in order to ensure a clear organisational approach and commitment to managing and addressing ASB within the Borough.  The policy will set out the obligations of all stakeholders including the CSU, Housing, Kent Police and Members.



The Portfolio Holder for Community Safety and Wellbeing introduced the report which presented for approval the Ashford Borough Council Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) Policy. The policy provided clarity on how the Council met its responsibilities under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.


The Deputy Leader said he strongly supported this policy and agreed that it was important that the Council continued to send the message that ASB would not be tolerated. The Council had recently invested in new deployable CCTV cameras which would be of great advantage to the Borough. They were very light and easily moveable to sites of ASB and should be easy to fix to street lampposts. Work was ongoing with KCC to ensure this was done and the Council was in a position to feedback information to the Police.




That the Ashford Borough Council Anti-Social Behaviour Policy be approved.
