We believe that tackling nuisance and anti-social behaviour is a key part of delivering sustainable communities and improving the quality of life for our residents and non-residents alike.

Any behaviour that has caused or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more people within their home or community is anti-social behaviour.

Examples of anti-social behaviour are:

  • Criminal activity (committing arrestable offences)
  • Damage to property
  • Dangerous dogs (Dangerous Dogs Act 1991)
  • Intimidation
  • Hate crime
  • Illegal drug abuse or distribution
  • Alcohol or solvent abuse
  • Noise nuisance.

Further information about how we deal with ASB can be found below.
