Social Rented Housing: Antisocial Behaviour Orders

Volume 469: debated on Monday 10 December 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what right tenant management organisations and arm's length management organisations have to obtain antisocial behaviour orders. (167550)

Local authorities have been provided with the discretion to decide whether they wish to delegate some or all of their antisocial behaviour order (ASBO) functions to arm’s length and tenant management organisations since 11 May 2007 when regulations were made.

This means an arm’s length management or a tenant management organisation may apply to the courts for an ASBO when they and the parent local authority have agreed this is appropriate.
