Vision:
To create neighbourhoods that are
increasingly safer places to be, where
people feel respected and where local
agencies and communities come
together to tackle anti social behaviour
by working in partnership and building
confidence in communities.
Principles:
• Effective action on ASB demands a balance
between rigorous enforcement and prevention
work.
• Victims of Anti-Social Behaviour should be
supported and responded to effectively.
• Whilst committed to taking tough action,
interventions should be based on the approach of
minimal intrusion and should be commensurate
with the seriousness of the offences.
• A formal problem-solving approach in tackling
Anti-Social Behaviour will be supported.
Principles:
• Remedies for ASB must promote long-term social
inclusion and community cohesion.
• Measures to tackle ASB must be consistent with
relevant legislation.
• The borough’s approach to Anti-Social Behaviour
should be supported by a clear commitment to
reliable and transparent communications.
• Communities and individual members of the
public should be engaged to play an active and
valued role in making Bromley safer.
