Decision details

Delegated Powers under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime & Policing Act 2014

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No




(1)       That Rykneld Homes Limited (RHL)  be designated as an authorised person (as defined by Sections 20 and 53 of the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014, and Anti-Social  Behaviour (Authorised Persons) Order 2015);


(2)       That in this capacity RHL issue Community Protection Notices (CPN) under Section 43 of the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014.


REASONS FOR DECISION – To enable Council and RHL officers to take swift and effective action against individuals and businesses committing Anti-Social Behaviour, which in most cases would hopefully stop this from recurring.


OTHER OPTIONS CONSIDERED AND REJECTED The option of not designating RHL as an authorised person under the legislation was considered but rejected, as it would not be in the best interests of the Council.  The new delegation would clarify the legal status of Rykneld Homes in accordance with the Act.


Please note that this was not a Key Decision and so can be implemented with immediate effect by officers
