Community trigger

Community triggers are special cases where repeated anti-social behaviour occurs.

If you have reported 3 separate incidents in the past 6 months to the council, police or social landlord and would like for an impartial review of your case, you can request a community trigger.

A community trigger is an impartial review of a case. A panel will review the case and determine if appropriate action is being taken to resolve anti-social behaviour. The panel can make recommendations to the responsible organisation to improve the situation. It is not a complaints process. If you are not satisfied with the outcome of a case, contact the organisation and ask for their complaints process.​

More information about the reporting process, along with action timescales, can be found in the Community Trigger Process Map document in the expandable Documents section on this page.

You can also download a reporting form from the expandable Documents section on this page.

You will need to provide us with details of 3 separate incidents that you have reported, or the names of 5 other residents who have reported the same incident. We will review the incident details and aim to respond to you within 2 working days.
