14.Subsection (1) requires each local authority to publish from time to time reports on how the authority and chief constable have implemented the antisocial behaviour strategy and what the results of that implementation have been. Subsection (3) provides that the Scottish Ministers may make regulations determining the form, content, frequency and timing of reports made under subsection (1). Before making such regulations, the Scottish Ministers shall consult such associations of local authorities and other persons as they think fit. Subsection (5) enables the Scottish Ministers to require a local authority to submit reports or information to them on the implementation and results of implementation of the strategy.

15.Subsection (2) places a duty on registered social landlords and the Principal Reporter, as well as the chief constable, to provide such information as the local authority may reasonably require to enable the local authority to comply with the duty under subsection (1).
