Anti-social behaviour

We want the community you live in to be safe, peaceful, attractive and welcoming. By working with you to prevent anti-social behaviour, we can help make your neighbourhood better for everyone.

We’re committed to building sustainable, friendly and positive communities, and we encourage our residents to embrace diversity, accepting each other and the right of everyone to live life their way. However, if another person’s way of life is causing a nuisance, causing damage or causing you to be scared or upset, we will not tolerate it.

If you’re experiencing or have witnessed anti-social behaviour in your neighbourhood, please report it to us. You can call 0800 2182247, email, report it on your account or fill in the form below.

If you witness a crime, please report it on 101, and in an emergency always call 999. 

What is anti-social behaviour?

The phrase ‘anti-social behaviour’ covers a wide range of actions, all of which cause nuisance, damage or hurt to people or the environment. Examples of anti-social behaviour include:

  • Harassment, intimidation or any threatening or hateful behaviour
  • Vandalism
  • Negative behaviour or actions directed at someone, which are racially aggravated or based on prejudice
  • Damaging or threatening to damage another person’s home or possessions
  • Not keeping a pet under control, which includes allowing it to foul in public areas or damage a property
  • Allowing people in your home to be excessively noisy or disruptive

Some examples of anti-social behaviour are also crimes. For example, using or supplying illegal drugs, threatening or abusive behaviour and racial discrimination. In these cases, please also call the police on 101 to report what you’ve seen, so we can work with them in tackling and monitoring the problem. 

How do we take action?

There are a number of ways we can take action when you report anti-social behaviour. These include working to prevent further activity, working with partners like the police and anti-social behaviour orders or eviction.

Some cases require a lot of evidence to be built up before we can take action, and we also have to collaborate with local organisations to ensure we’re following the correct legal procedures. This can mean your case takes time to be resolved – however, by providing consistent evidence and accurate reports, we can work together to make our communities safer and happier.
