Anti-social Behaviour: Community Trigger

If you have reported a problem to the council, police or housing provider and you feel not enough action has been taken to respond to your report, the community trigger is a way for you to ask for a case review.

The community trigger can be used by individuals, businesses or community groups. You can start a community trigger if:

  • you have reported three separate incidents relating to the same problem in the past six months to the Council, Police or your landlord and you've had inadequate response or feel ignored
  • at least five people have made reports about the same problem in the past six months.
