THE yob may have had his day in Huddersfield.
An action plan to curb anti-social behaviour is set to be approved this week.
And a series of recommendations are being proposed to give extra powers to council officers, magistrates and schools to deal with yobs.
Already, a new team of council officials and police are at work in Huddersfield to deal with vandals and hooligans.
More than 20 anti-social behaviour orders have been granted by courts and more are in the pipeline.
But a top-level panel of councillors now believes more money and more resources need to be directed towards the problem, to clean up the streets.
Ideas they propose include:
* Other agencies such as police and housing groups to help fund measures
* A full study of anti-social behaviour to be carried out
* More Neighbourhood Wardens to be taken on
* More recreation facilities to be provided for youngsters
* More measures to tackle school truants
* Adopt a Proof Of Age scheme across Kirklees.
The detailed recommendations are to go before a special Kirklees Council scrutiny committee tomorrow. Councillors will then be asked to forward it to a meeting of the full council next month.
The panel said the main problems of anti-social behaviour were of young people gathering in groups and causing a nuisance, litter problems and the large number of abandoned vehicles.
A survey showed that 71% of Kirklees residents felt that bad behaviour was a big problem in the area.
There were many trouble spots identified including Almondbury and Mirfield's London Park estate, where councillors have met with residents and police to see the problems at first hand.
A council spokesman said: "From the evidence it is clear that anti-social behaviour is increasing across the country.
"It acts as a catalyst for more serious crime and disorder, inhibits communities and is costly.
"It is for these reasons that the panel is presenting the recommendations to continue to tackle the problem in Kirklees."
