Knocking The Nockie

13 December 2011
Frank with WPH ASB team Frank met with WPH's ASB team to congratulate them on recieving a Tilley award for their work on the Nocturum Estate.

The Aim of the team is to bring back the idea of everyone being a good neighbour and that neighbours from hell have to realise that they risk losing their home by continuous anti-social behaviour.
The group recieved a certificate of merit for their scheme, named 'Knocking The Nockie' which developed a tailored package of interventions that were implemented all year round, with specific additional focus being provided between Halloween and bonfire night.

Interventions included:
  • a series of out of targeted home visits whereby parents of offenders were warned under existing tenancy agreements about the likelihood of eviction if problems persisted
  • adopting a restorative justice approach for removing vandalism and graffiti
  • working with the local community to organise events, such as a local bonfire night, as part of improving community cohesion within the area.
The area has seen impressive reductions in antisocial behaviour and criminal damage:
  • inappropriate use of fireworks reduced by over 59 per cent (from 109 between 15 October – 15 November 2008 to 44 per cent over the same period in 2010)
  • environmental damage reduced by over 80 per cent (from 57 incidents between 15 October – 15 November 2008 to 15 incidents over the same period in 2010)
  • rowdy and inconsiderate behaviour reduced by over 55 per cent (from 775 incidents between 15 October and 15 November 2008 to 346 incidents between the same period in 2010)
