VICTIMS of anti-social behaviour will have a say on what should happen to perpetrators as part of a raft of new powers being brought in.

The new rules come in to force in October in a bid to streamline and simplify the powers and tools for tackling anti-social behaviour so "faster, more flexible approaches" can be taken.

Coun Jenny Platts outlined the plans, who explained how the act will replace behavioural orders and create new duties to support victims and witnesses.

It means some offences will be dealt out of court using 'community remedies'. These will give victims and witnesses a say, and some element of control, in how a perpetrator should be punished.
