Community Protection Notice

Decision Maker: Head of Environmental Health and Housing

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Continued ASB - rat infestation and odour problems from failure to keep residential garden in reasonably clean state - i.e accumulation of rubbish, food waste and dog mess. Reported by local residents and a Housing Association.


Having tried lower level interventions - in co-operation with the Subject's Housing Association landlord - I decided that it was necessary and proportionate to use a Community Protection Notice under the Anti-social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014. All actions arise out of M3 case ref. WK/201908225.

Alternative options considered:

Option 1 - Informal action - direct personal communication - no response received.
Option 2 - CPN warning letter - no action in response to it.
Option 3 - escalated to CPN - i.e. Notice
