Antisocial behaviour

What is antisocial behaviour?

Antisocial behaviour is a behaviour that causes, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm and distress to a person from a different household.

Behaviours most likely fall into one of the following; abandoned vehicles, vehicle nuisance, rowdy or inconsiderate behaviour, nuisance neighbours, littering or drugs paraphernalia, animals, trespassing, nuisance calls, street drinking, nuisance noise, begging or misuse of fireworks.

If I witness or am a victim of ASB how do I report it?

If you would like to report it you can call the police on 101, or report online. 

Certain behaviours may come under the remit of the local council, such as noise issues, trespassing, parking and therefore you will need to report it directly to your local council. 

Who can I talk to if I am a victim of ASB?

There are various services you can talk to if you have been affected by antisocial behaviour. You can find these by searching in the bar at the top.

You can also talk to your council or contact Citizens Advice for more information and advice around civil issues.

What is a Community Trigger?

A Community Trigger empowers repeat victims of anti social behaviour to ask for a review of actions agencies have taken to resolve the concern. To do so, you need to have experienced three incidents in the last six months and there needs to have been five individuals who have all separately reported but are dissatisfied with the action taken. Each of the incidents need to have been reported within one month of them taking place and you must apply for a trigger within six months of the latest incident.
