The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 provides the police and local authorities with a range of flexible tools and powers that they can use to tackle anti-social behaviour.

The powers include Public Spaces Protection Orders which local authorities can issue to stop people committing anti-social behaviour in a public space including restricting access to a public right of way and Community Protection Notices which can be used by the police or the local authority to deal with ongoing problems or nuisances which are having a persistent or continuing and detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality.

The powers are designed to enable local agencies to tailor their response according to the particular circumstances.
