The community trigger can be used by anyone - individuals, businesses or community groups - if one of the following criteria is met:

  • If you (as an individual) have reported the same problem three or more times in the past six months to the council, police and/or Registered Social Landlord

Or

  • different individuals have made reports about the same problem three or more times in the past six months to the council, police or housing provider

If you do not meet this criteria the decision may still be made to carry out a review based on factors such as:

  • the persistence of the anti-social behaviour
  • the harm or potential harm caused by the anti-social behaviour
  • the adequacy of the response from agencies
