Review of Leeds Anti-Social Behaviour Team

Reference: D49826

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Director of Communities and Environment submitted a report which set out proposals to redesign the Leeds Anti-Social Behaviour Team (LASBT), with the aim of establishing a more sustainable service through which officers were increasingly able to focus upon early intervention and work with communities in order to prevent anti-social behaviour.


Members welcomed the proposals and highlighted the role which had been played by the Environment, Housing and Communities Scrutiny Board in the review exercise.


Responding to an enquiry, assurance was provided that resources would continue to support outer areas, but in addition, the new model would aim to integrate further with wider service provision in order to maximise the benefits for all.


Also, assurance was provided that when anti-social behaviour was reported, the team would respond to it in accordance with agreed procedures and protocols, irrespective of whether it occurred on Council land or elsewhere.


RESOLVED – That the priorities, as outlined in the submitted report be noted, and that the implementation of the service changes, as set out in paragraphs 3.7 – 3.20 of the submitted report, be endorsed.
