South Tyneside Homes Neighbourhood Officers and Handy Estates teams are able to issue Fixed Penalty Notices for litter, dog fouling and fly tipping offenders.

The Community Safety and Tenancy Enforcement team within South Tyneside Homes works in partnership with Northumbria Police, Tyne and Wear Fire Service and Environmental Health to prevent and tackle anti-social behaviour issues across South Tyneside using a variety of tools and powers. A total of 5 anti-social behaviour cases were reported this year and were responded to within the set timescales. A new smart phone app will be introduced in 2018/19 which will make it easier for tenants to capture evidence of anti-social behaviour and send this direct to their caseworker to use in formal enforcement action.
