Response - A Respect Standard for Housing Management

By: Nigel Parkinson  Published: August 2006


The DCLG issued a consultation on its proposals for a Respect Standard for housing Management as a means to tackle anti-social behaviour.

Summary

We welcome the Respect Standard as part of a more balanced approach to dealing with ASB. We believe that the proposed standard outlines the core components of an effective response to tackling ASB. The Standard seeks to do this by drawing on lessons learnt and using best practices and we welcome this approach as it focuses on engagement, prevention, support and enforcement. However, we would wish to see some of the core components of the draft standard strengthened and we would want the suggested support schemes to be adequately funded.
