Anti-social behaviour

Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of issues which can cause people significant alarm or distress. That’s why we take anti-social behaviour so seriously.

Examples of anti-social behaviour include:

  • loud noise or music from neighbours
  • offensive drunkenness
  • drug dealing
  • major car repairs
  • dog nuisance
  • violence
  • incidents around race, sexual orientation, gender, disability, religion, age and lifestyle choices.

Tackling anti-social behaviour

If the problem isn’t too serious, you could have a friendly word with the person causing the problem, explain what’s troubling you and ask if they can change or stop what they’re doing.

If you’re worried or afraid of approaching the person or the problem continues, get in touch with us using the contacts below or complete the form on this page.

You should contact the police to report incidents of criminal behaviour such as damage to property, assault, violence, threats of violence, burglary, drug dealing etc. Call the non-emergency police number on 101 or 999 for emergencies.

Anti-social behaviour reporting form

You can use this form to report anti-social behaviour.

You don’t have to give us your contact details but we won’t be able to discuss or tell you what’s happening with the issue if we don’t have your details.

If you give us your contact details we’ll contact you within one working day to discuss the issue and tell you about action we can take, if any.

Depending on the problem, we share the information you give us with other organisations such as the police and/or your local council and other organisations - this is usually with your agreement. We also have a duty to report incidents to other organisations to help prevent harm to individuals and to prevent and detect crime and anti-social behaviour – this may be without your consent.
