Perhaps you might like to read Part 1 of the Terrorism Act 2006. See if you could find a charge that equates to the actions of these 'auditors'.
Until you 'challenge' them how are you supposed to know what they're doing? Someone wandering around videoing buildings, people and cars is, IMHO, very unusual.Perhaps you might like to read Part 1 of the Terrorism Act 2006.

Challenging is fine, but what most of what these 'auditors' do is perfectly legal, albeit annoying. Annoying isn't (yet) against the law.Until you 'challenge' them how are you supposed to know what they're doing? Someone wandering around videoing buildings, people and cars is, IMHO, very unusual.
You are barking up the wrong tree there.Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 is a good place to start.
An Act to make provision about anti-social behaviour, crime and disorder, including provision about recovery of possession of dwelling-houses; to make provision amending the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, the Police Act 1997, Schedules 7 and 8 to the Terrorism Act 2000, the Extradition Act 2003 and...www.legislation.gov.uk
It gives the Police, and can give some lower order bodies (Ie: Council officers, CSAS) powers to deal with assholes. The threshold can be quite low.
Eg: busybody mit camera acting odd to try and provoke a response, but tries it in a PSPO. Bellend gets reported to authorities. This gets passed on to Council/Police. The act of reporting is arguably sufficient to justify a prosecution as it has alarmed someone. Hell, it doesn't even need to be reported. If the officer thinks it may cause ASB and can justify that (it all depends on the wording of the PSPO).
Police have more wide ranging powers, that I think can be applied anywhere, while Council and CSAS are geographically limited I believe.
