ASB case review

Victims of persistent ASB can request a review of their case if they believe more can be done by relevant agencies to tackle the issues reported.  

This is called an ASB case review. A case review cannot be used to make a complaint or report new incidents of ASB.  

If you are Swindon-based resident, business, community group or individual acting on behalf of another person with their consent, you can request an ASB case review using the form below.  

If you're raising the incident of ASB for the first time, you should report ASB instead of raising a case review.

How to request an ASB case review

Your request must meet the following threshold to proceed to a case review:

There must be three or more separate, qualifying reports of ASB made to the police, council or housing provider in the past six months. Each incident must have been reported within one month of it taking place.

If this threshold is not met, a formal ASB case review will not take place, but the relevant agencies may review the case to determine any further actions that may help resolve the matter.
