- verbal abuse
- intimidating gatherings of young people in public places

Antisocial behaviour policy
Poplar HARCA is committed to providing homes that people want to live in, in communities where people feel safe, in areas that people feel proud of. We will encourage tolerance and respect to foster an inclusive environment within which individuals and communities can thrive. We understand the enduring harm that Antisocial Behaviour (ASB) can cause to individuals, neighbourhoods and communities. We recognise that to provide a quality housing service Poplar HARCA must be effective in tackling the causes of and problems associated with all types of ASB. We will work to deal with ASB quickly, effectively and in a way that respects complainants’ preferences.Download (153.60 Kb)
