The following Local Government practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 (ABCPA 2014) received Royal Assent on 13 March 2014. It has reformed the tools available for dealing with anti-social behaviour (ASB). The aim was to consolidate remedies and to make the process simpler and more effective. In July 2014 the government issued new statutory guidance which was updated in August 2019: Reform of anti-social behaviour powers: statutory guidance for frontline professionals’.
The web of powers available to the police and local authorities and other agencies to tackle ASB is streamlined to six key remedies:
civil injunctions. See Practice Note: Anti-social behaviour—powers to control behaviour under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014—Part 1 Civil Injunctions

dispersal powers. See Q&A: What powers of dispersal are available to the police and/or a local authority under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 ? How are they imposed and what matters are taken into consideration?
