Leeds Anti-Social Behaviour Team (LASBT) comprises of staff from Leeds City Council, West Yorkshire Police, Arms Length Management Organisations, Belle Isle Tenant Management Organisation, West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Services and Victim Support. We work together to reduce crime and anti social behaviour (ASB) in your area.
Leeds City Council recognises that the definitions of nuisance and ASB are wide ranging and are based on your perceptions. Anti-social behaviour is defined in Section 1 of the Crime & Disorder Act 1988 as a person or persons acting in such a way “that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household.”
LASBT will seek to tackle anti-social behaviour at the earliest opportunity through a combination of prevention, enforcement and support & resettlement activities. We feel that ASB responses should be driven by a recognition of the level of harm caused.
Working with our partner agencies and the local community we will take a stand against anti-social behaviour, to move away from a situation where people tolerate problems, to one where everyone works together to tackle those problems, and improve their quality of life.
All case participants will be treated with dignity and respect, with individual vulnerabilities and safeguarding needs identified and provided for.
Within LASBT noise nuisance is classed as anti-social behaviour and will be dealt with as such. LASBT are able to deal with noise nuisance from residential properties, if you are experiencing problems with noise from commercial or industrial premises please contact the Environmental Protection Team on 0113 222 4406.
