At its inception, the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 appeared to be no more than a ‘repackaging’ of old powers in a consolidated toolkit to assist police and other authorities to deal with anti-social behaviour. Are the new powers effective in addressing anti-social behaviour or is there more we can do? How are the courts treating applications for IPNAs and Closure Orders and are there secrets to success? What tactics work to reduce time and cost in litigation? Join us on 22nd June 2017 to find out. The panel includes Chris Grose of Capsticks, Damian Powell of Field Court, Emily Giles of Hyde Housing and Deputy District Judge Maya Naidoo.
Sarah Salmon, barrister at Field Court and member of the SHLA committee, will chair the session.
The panel will discuss the remedies available to social landlords dealing with anti-social behaviour and provide top tips from seasoned practitioners. You will have an opportunity to share your experiences with other SHLA members and put questions to the panel. So, register now to avoid disappointment.

No one who witnessed the horrific events at Grenfell Tower last week could fail to be moved by the sheer scale of the human loss and tragedy.
For those who live and work in social housing, that tragedy was particularly close to home.
The committee of SHLA wishes to express its sincere condolences and sympathies to all those affected by the fire at Grenfell Tower.
SHLA will donate the proceeds from its next members' meeting on 22nd June 2017 to assist those affected.
