About Cornerstone on Anti-social Behaviour

With the introduction of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, victims of anti-social behaviour also now have tools to enable them to insist on a response to a problem where nothing seems to have been done. It sets out the following six tools which came into use from October 2014:

1. Injunction
2. Criminal Behaviour Order
3. Dispersal Powers
4. Community Protection Notices and Orders
5. Public Spaces Protection Order
6. Closure of Premises

Since the guidance was revised, there has been confusion within local authorities as to what the changes are, how their powers and orders should be adapted to comply with the new guidance.

Fully updated and providing analysis of the revised guidance with commentary explaining what the changes are and what they mean for those working in this area, the second edition of Cornerstone on Anti-social Behaviour remains the first port of call for every one working in the area of, and carrying out ASB work.

“Cornerstone on ASB is a must read for any practitioner working in community safety. It acts as an invaluable one stop shop for legislation, case law and best practice in relation to the tools and powers arising from the ASB, Crime and Policing Act 2014. The added bonus is the resource section at the back, including template documents and fully reproduced guidance. I am incredibly grateful for this new, fully updated edition, if only to replace my dog-eared 1st edition!” –  Janine Green ASB

“The 2nd edition of Cornerstone on Anti-social Behaviour stands out as being an essential companion for everyone working in this field. I can honestly say that, in our area, successful partnership working leading to effective court orders has been entirely due to Kuljit's book – she is indeed the true queen of ASB. We are delighted to see the 2nd edition has arrived on the shelves.” –  Mrs Jane Redman, Principal Solicitor Litigation, Three Rivers District Council,

“A book worthy of any practitioner's bookshelf!” –  Resolve, Review of previous edition

“This is an invaluable toolkit. It has clear and concise guidance, good precedents and a useful review not only the new act but also of how it overlaps with and enhances existing legislation.” –  Law Society Gazette, Review of previous edition

“The complete Bible on ASB tools and powers. Thoroughly recommend to all in ASB field.” –  London ASB Managers Group, Review of previous edition

“...the book has been very well produced and exceedingly useful.” –  Ealing Council, Review of previous edition

“I have used [this] book throughout [the process of being granted an injunction under the new Act] and given the details of it to the defence barrister and also to our resident Judge!... I love it!!!” –  Litigation Solicitor, Winchester City Council, Review of previous edition

“I found this a very useful and easy to follow book and would recommend it to any practitioner but especially for those who do not carry out ASB work on a regular basis.” –  Local Government Lawyer, Review of previous edition

“Whether these are areas that you deal with daily, weekly or occasionally, this book must be seen as the 'go to' text for everybody involved in this wide-ranging and vital area of local government activity.” –  James Button Bulletin
