Again drawing from the 2006/07 BCS (Lovbakke 2007: 110), 31 percent of social renters perceived high levels of ASB where they live, compared to 18 percent of private renters and 15 percent of owner–occupiers.

For example, in the foreword to the government’s Policy Action Team report into ASB (SEU 2000a), Charles Clarke MP stated that ASB, ‘is a widespread problem but its effects are often most damaging in communities that are already fragile’. 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.
