These ‘fragile’ communities would tend to be poorer, urban and, probably, social housing areas. The possibility of ASB being an urban concern is supported by other survey evidence (Millie 2007a). Using London as an example, according to the 2003/04 BCS (Moore and Yeo 2004: 4), 32 percent of inner-city Londoners perceived high levels of ‘local disorder’, compared to 22 percent for outer London and 17 percent across the whole of England and Wales. For the more recent 2006/07 BCS (Lovbakke 2007: 110) 20 percent of people living in urban areas perceived there to be high levels of ASB where they live, compared to just 8 percent of those living in rural areas.

The five local authority areas with the lowest scores were City of London, Broadland (Norfolk), East Dorset, Mid-Suffolk and Derbyshire Dales – scoring between 5 and 9 percent each. City of London is obviously an urban area, but has a unique character as it is dominated by the financial industry and very few people actually live there (unlike all other London boroughs). The other four low scoring areas are all better off, rural or semi-rural districts. In the national survey by Millie et al. (2005a) key predictors of different ASB issues having a fairly/big effect on respondents’ quality of life were determined using logistic regression analysis.

Similarly, 52 percent of those very dissatisfied with their local neighbourhood considered drug use and dealing to be a serious problem, compared to just 8 percent who were very satisfied with their local neighbourhood. 4 London Household Survey 2002: householder satisfaction with local neighbourhood and thought ASB issues were a ‘serious problem’ Issue a ‘serious problem’ Litter and rubbish in the streets ProbVandalPreslems ism ence of with and Graffiti drug dogs/ hoolidealers/ dog ganism users mess ProbTroublelems some with teenagers/ neighchildren bours Very dissatisfied 59 64 40 52 35 41 27 Dissatisfied 51 50 33 34 25 28 9 Neither satisfied nor dissatisfied 37 33 23 23 21 16 2 Satisfied 27 22 17 14 16 10 3 Very satisfied 17 13 11 8 11 4 1 No opinion 21 13 6 9 33 8 7 Note: See also Millie et al.
