What is anti-social behaviour?
Anti-social behaviour is a broad term that is used to describe behaviour that may affect your quality of life and the peaceful enjoyment of your home.
This could include noise, verbal abuse, harassment, threatening behaviour, unacceptable levels of noise, drugs and alcohol misuse and inconsiderate use of communal areas.
For further information please read our ASB policy and procedure (PDF 647KB- opens new window).
Complaints about, for example, household noise, are often reported to us as anti-social behaviour. Common complaints include children playing, doors closing, furniture being moved and hearing footsteps.
These matters would not be considered anti-social behaviour. Your neighbour may not be aware that they are causing a problem and you may be able to resolve the issue quickly and easily without reporting it. Our brand new ‘dear neighbour’ cards (PDF 719KB- open new window) can help you to do this. Download a card or pick one up from your local Area Service Centre. The cards can be dropped off anonymously to let your neighbour know they may have caused a noise.
