Community protection notice

This is intended to deal with particular persistent environmental anti-social behaviour, by targeting those responsible.

The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 received royal assent on 13 March 2014 and became fully operational from 20 October 2014. It introduced several simpler, more effective powers aimed at tackling anti-social behaviour and providing better protection for victims and communities.

The community protection notice is a notice for local authorities and police to stop persistent environmental anti-social behaviour, such as graffiti, neighbour noise or the dumping of rubbish on private land. It applies to all behaviour that is detrimental to the local community’s quality of life.


They can be issued to 'an individual aged 16 or over, or a body, if satisfied on reasonable grounds that (i) the conduct of the individual or body is having a detrimental effect, of a persistent or continuing nature, on the quality of life of those in the locality; and (ii) the conduct is unreasonable.'


This is an out-of-court power and breach is a criminal offence.
