For the size of would i would like to cut up yes

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Can they apply for an ASBO yes, whether they would be successful is a different matter. They would need to show that it caused a nuisance and that it contravened the Environment Proection Act 1990 by causing a disturbance to others.
The court would then decide whether it was a disturbance and whether or not it was necessary to to make an order.
So yes they can apply for one, but that does not mean they will be granted one,
