Anti-Social Behaviour

We are committed to tackling Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) and supporting victims and witnesses. We know that ASB can affect a person's quality of life and is often targeted at the most vulnerable people in our community.

What is Anti-Social Behaviour?

ASB is anything that affects a person's quality of life.  It is defined as behaviour that causes, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress to any person.  It includes all behaviour which impacts negatively on other people's lives in and around our community.

The Icon for pdf Anti-Social Behaviour Leaflet [2.66MB]gives examples of ASB, explains how you can report it, and what happens to people who commit ASB.

Some issues such as Noise Pollution, Fly tipping and Dog fouling are dealt with by other departments within the Council; please visit the relevant page for more information.

If you feel you have not had a satisfactory response to the ASB you have reported you may be eligible to have your case reviewed under the Community Trigger.
