Confirmation of commencement date for new ASB Civil injunction

The Home Office has now confirmed that Part 1 of the ASB, Crime and Policing Act 2014 – the Civil Injunction – will commence on 23rd March 2015.

It has been announced that the Ministry of Justice will shortly complete the required changes to the legal aid system to enable Part 1 to come into force.

Landlords are urged to continue with preparations for the Civil Injunction and the ‘Reform of anti-social behaviour powers: Statutory guidance for frontline professionals’, published in July 2014, gives details on how the Civil Injunction, and the other new anti-social behaviour powers, can be used.
