Anti-Social Behaviour

Guidance on the law around fireworks, how to stay safe and how to report the misuse of fireworks.
Neighbours parking in your space or across your driveway, and people abandoning vehicles on the street can seem like a matter for the police. However, the first point of contact is very often Lincolnshire County Council (for parking issues). Inconsiderate parking is not Anti-Social Behaviour. Here you can learn more about what constitutes nuisance parking and what to do if it's affecting you.
If an animal has been poorly treated it can be dangerous to the public or other animals. Find out how to stay safe from aggressive or neglected animals, report them and help us bring their owners to account.
Nuisance noise is any loud or persistent noise that causes you ongoing concern or affects your quality of life. East Lindsey District Council is usually your first point of contact for reporting nuisance noise as this isn't usually a matter for the police. However, if the situation feels like it may get heated or violent as a result of the noise Lincolnshire Police will intervene.
Unsolicited phone calls and knocks at your door can be annoying, but persistent or malicious calls and visits can be unpleasant and even intimidating. Find out below the common types of caller and what you can do about them.
Fly-tipping and littering covers a range of items that people might discard in a public place, from large appliances like fridges to drugs-related paraphernalia like needles and syringes.
We don't always see eye-to-eye with our neighbours, but in most cases simply talking peacefully to one another is the best way to solve a problem. However, if talking hasn't worked or you can't discuss the issue with your neighbour, find out how you can get help to resolve the issue.
Nuisance behaviour by groups of people, such as drinking alcohol in the street, taking drugs in public places, or trespassing on private property may not be against the law. However, this activity can lead to criminal behaviour and pose a risk to the wider community. Here you can find out the most common types of nuisance behaviour and what you can do about it.
Anti-social use of a vehicle, such as street racing, street cruising or off-road use is more than a matter of noise pollution - though this can be the most noticeable problem. Find out below about the different kinds of vehicle nuisance, their long-term effect on a neighbourhood and what you can do about it.
The Anti-Social Behaviour Case Review (also known as the Community Trigger) allows victims of persistent ASB to request a formal review of their case, where the local threshold is met.
