We are committed to helping our members tackle ASB in their communities. Welsh housing associations recognise their responsibility to tackle ASB and make full use of the powers which are available to them. Through our training and member forums, we are able to provide case law updates and advice on dealing with ASB.
Selina Moyo, Policy Officer, is CHC's representative on the Welsh Government's Anti-social Behaviour Steering Group which is currently working on the recommendations coming out of the independent report Welsh Government and South Wales Police are currently gathering views from the sector on a proposed ASB toolkit, which will align indicators across the housing sector and promote early intervention.
We responded to the Department for Communities and Local Government's consultation on proposals for a new mandatory power of possession for anti-social behaviour. We welcome this attempt to speed up the legal process of eviction in cases where serious housing-related anti-social behaviour has already been proven. But we caution that its success will depend on the response of the courts.
