What you can do if you are affected by anti-social behaviour
You can report anti-social behaviour if you need help from us or the police.
But you should first make sure that you are speaking to the right people.
Anti-social behaviour is defined as:
behaviour that is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more people not in the same household
Anti-social behaviour can affect one person or groups of people. It can also include:
- fear of crime
- concern for public safety
- public disorder
- public nuisance
If you think your problem falls under anti-social behaviour, we can help you make a report.
