Most people want to live in a welcoming, positive community where neighbours get on and people enjoy their homes. Sometimes this doesn’t happen because everyone has different ideas of what behaviour is acceptable.
What is anti-social behaviour?
Anti-social behaviour (ASB) is that which is harassing, or causes alarm or distress to others. It can include drug use, abandoned cars, noise, rowdy or nuisance behaviour, vandalism, or harassment on the grounds of race, sexual orientation or other personal characteristics.
What to do if you experience ASB
We hope you enjoy your home and don’t have any problems with neighbours. If you do, we would always advise you to speak to your neighbour in a friendly way to resolve any problems. Calmly and politely explain to them how their behaviour is affecting you. If other neighbours are experiencing the same problems, try to get their support.
If you have spoken to your neighbour and they are still causing problems, please report the ASB to us. If you experience any behaviour which puts you in immediate danger, please call the police.
