Anti social behaviour (ASB)

Who we are

The Council's Anti-Social Behaviour Unit (ASBU) was set up in in response to a growing problem with anti-social behaviour in the City of Plymouth. We are a dedicated team committed to reducing anti-social behaviour and promoting safer communities in our city.

Our aim

The aim for Plymouth's ASBU is to find suitable solutions for tackling anti-social behaviour issues through a range of activities, to strive to engage with individuals to modify their behaviour within a multi-agency, problem solving context and to work in partnership with other agencies which include the police, housing associations, residents and tenants groups.

Tackling ASB

There are a number of actions and tools that we can use to combat ASB which include:

  • Acceptable behaviour contracts (ABCs)
  • Demoted tenancy orders
  • Closure notices
  • Stand alone anti social behaviour orders (ASBOs)
  • Anti social behaviour injunctions (ASBIs)

Reporting anti social behaviour

  • Please phone 01752 307049 or email to report anti social behaviour in Plymouth.

Together we will tackle anti social behaviour in Plymouth.
