Delegated Authority for the Use of CPNs Webinar
Over the past 12 months, myself and Darren Burton from Forbes Solicitors, have been working with Sheffield Hallam University and a range of representatives from different Housing Providers, Local Authorities and police representatives throughout the UK to explore the effective use of the Community Protection Notice (CPN) as an appropriate remedy for tackling ASB-related issues in our neighbourhoods.
One of the first areas of focus for this national working group has been to examine the potential factors behind a low take up of delegated authority to social landlords of the CPN and highlight examples of best practices which have resulted in effective outcomes that can be replicated elsewhere.
This webinar explored findings and recommendations arising from the research of Sheffield Hallam University and gives you the opportunity to hear from local authority colleagues in Brighton & Hove, who have effectively delegated authority to use the CPN to some of their social housing partners. We then heard from 2 housing providers, who have taken different approaches to embedding the CPN within their toolkit and processes and about the collaborative approaches that have been developed to successfully obtain delegated authority, advice on how to overcome some of the common challenges and the positive impact that this has had on their respective communities.
