This report constitutes the final output of research undertaken by the Southern
Research Centre to develop effective housing management policies to combat
problems of anti-social behaviour (ASB). Previous outputs from the research include: a
Positioning Paper - that provided a review of relevant literature and a summary of
existing policies used by State Housing Authorities in Australia; and a Work in Progress
Report - that outlined details of preliminary research findings.
The Final Report builds on the earlier outputs of the research by presenting the findings
from the two case study investigations undertaken in Christie Downs in South Australia
and Bridgewater in Tasmania. The report begins with a discussion of the policy context
and reiteration of the aims and methods of the research. Chapter Two summarises
relevant literature on the theme of anti-social behaviour and discusses the trends and
emerging policy themes in this area. Chapter Three explains the data collection
strategy that has been devised to answer the research questions for the project.
Chapters Four through Seven present the findings of the project and are organised
along thematic lines to show how each of the research questions have been answered.
The concluding chapter summarises the overall findings and sets out the key policy
issues arising from the project.
