During these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever that communities still feel able to report concerns, and we understand many victims of anti-social behaviour (ASB) will be feeling worried and unsure of where to turn. We want to reassure you we are adapting our services to reflect the situation and give you the confidence in our ability to deal with ASB.

We are committed to ensuring you enjoy your right to peace, quiet and security in your home.
We recognise anti-social behaviour (ASB) can affect the lives of individuals and, in some cases, can disrupt a community. It is, therefore, our intention to provide an effective and efficient service to resolve problems quickly and, where appropriate, take enforcement action against perpetrators.
Anti-social behaviour (ASB) is conduct that has caused, or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to any person.
A hate crime is any incident which constitutes a criminal offence, which is perceived by the victim or any other person as being motivated by prejudice or hate.
Where there is a dispute between neighbours, a lifestyle clash or minor nuisance that is not likely to amount to a breach of tenancy these cases will be dealt with by a mediator.
We work with the police, the office of the police and crime commissioner, the local authority and other agencies to develop effective strategies for dealing with ASB.
