Anti-social behaviour and hate crime
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.
