According to the PHOF, in 2014/15, there were 22 complaints about noise per 1,000 population across Hackney and the City combined.

In 2015/16, approximately two fifths (41%) of all reported anti-social behaviour (ASB) complaints in Hackney related to noise and nuisance neighbour incidents.  Hackney Council’s ASB and Noise Team handles an average of 8,600 cases related to noise each year. 3

The City Community Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (CCM) was formed in February 2016.  It is a multi-agency forum that examines high risk cases of crime and anti-social behaviour.  Between February 2016 and June 2016, the CCM examined 30 cases.

In 2016, Hackney Council’s e-panel was used to consult residents on their experiences with ASB and their views on how best to manage it.  Figure 1 shows the types of ASB experienced and reported according to this survey. Night-time economy debris and litter were found to be of most concern, along with poor car driving, aggressive begging and drug dealers/gangs.  The survey findings also indicate that the majority of ASB incidents that are experienced are not reported. 4
