What it is and how to report it
Call 999 if a crime is happening now or you're in immediate danger.
Anti-social behaviour is unacceptable.
Definition of ASB:
The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act (2014) defines ASB as:
- “conduct that has caused, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress to any person”
- “conduct capable of causing nuisance or annoyance to a person in relation to that person’s occupation of residential premises”
- “conduct capable of causing housing-related nuisance or annoyance to any person”
Anti-social behaviour (ASB) is classed under these three categories:
If you’re experiencing anti-social behaviour, you could try and talk to the person causing the problem. They may not realise they’re being anti-social. Only do this if you feel safe and comfortable.
To report environmental issues, like graffiti, fly-posting, rubbish or dog mess, please report to environmental health.
ASB involving a council tenant
If you’re a council tenant or the person responsible for the ASB is a council tenant, please report to our housing team.
All other issues of ASB should be reported to the ASB Team using our report anti-social behaviour form.
What to do if the problem isn’t resolved
You can start a Community Trigger if you’ve reported anti-social behaviour but don’t feel enough action has been taken.
