Anti-social behaviour

Anti-Social Behaviour

We’re committed to tackling anti-social behaviour (ASB), hate crime and domestic abuse in our communities, and to being a major player in transforming the quality of life in our neighbourhoods.

We want you to enjoy peace, quiet and security in and around your home. We deal with ASB in a number of ways. Find out more about how we deal with ASB.

ASB includes a wide range of unacceptable behaviour that affects peoples’ quality of life, including:    

  • Noise, like loud music or noisy parties       
  • Verbal abuse, harassment, intimidation or threatening behaviour
  • Hate crime
  • Vandalism and damage to property
  • Nuisance vehicle noise
  • Drug misuse and dealing
  • Alcohol related disturbances
  • Domestic abuse or violence
  • Littering, fly-tipping, overgrown gardens or hedges
  • Pet or animal nuisance
  • Misuse of communal areas or public spaces - loitering, prostitution, sexual acts, kerb crawling
  • Criminal behaviour not included above.

Behaviour that we wouldn’t normally class as ASB includes:

  • Household noise due to everyday living (such as babies crying, doors banging, toilets flushing or vacuuming)
  • Children playing
  • One-off parties, barbecues or celebrations at reasonable times
  • Cooking smells
  • DIY in reasonable hours
  • Someone parking lawfully

However, if any of the above are found to be having a harmful impact on a person because they are vulnerable, then we will investigate the matter further.

Reporting ASB

If you are suffering as a result of any kind of ASB, please let us know:

If the incident involves a crime you should report it to the police. In an emergency (property or life is at risk), dial 999. For non-emergencies, dial 101 and then let your Housing Patch Manager know.
