Community Trigger applications

Community Trigger / ASB Case Reviews

If you feel agencies have not acted on antisocial behaviour concerns which you have reported, you can submit a Community Trigger application using the online forms below.

Before completing a form the case must meet certain criteria:

  • You have reported antisocial behaviour concerns at least three times in the last six months relating to separate but related incidents and the problem persists.
  • The time frame for any actions agreed by the agencies to which you have complained must have expired - you cannot raise a Community Trigger until it has.
  • If you are unhappy with the conduct of a particular agency or officer, this should be logged as a complaint directly to the relevant agency and will be dealt with through their complaints procedure, not as a Community Trigger.

If you wish to complete a group application form, please print off the relevant form as you will need five signatures to confirm consent has been given from the named individuals.

  • Community Trigger group form (PDF document [320.1Kb]) - You can submit a Community Trigger request using this form if you are aware that other people in the local community have reported separate, but related, anti social incidents to agencies in the last six months and the problem persists. The trigger will be started if five or more individuals have made separate, but related reports over a six month period.

We will acknowledge your Community Trigger submission within 3 working days. If it meets the criteria a multi-agency group will review your complaints and identify any additional actions that should be taken to help resolve the problem and share this action plan with you within 25 working days.
