Anti Social Behaviour Review Summary of Responses

Date published: 19 December 2019

This document provides a summary of responses to the public consultation exercise carried out between 17 April 2018 and 24 July 2018.


The purpose of the consultation was to help considerations regarding the effectiveness of current legislation to manage anti-social behaviour (ASB) – “behaviour which has caused or was likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household as himself”. The consultation had a particular emphasis on nuisance and inconsiderate behaviours linked to the consumption of alcohol in public spaces, or during public celebrations, and the consideration of legislative powers to address this issue.
