Antisocial behaviour

Antisocial behaviour causes alarm and distress. The Community Safety Team are committed to tackling antisocial behaviour and our Community Safety Officers are dedicated to making it easier for you to seek advice and support.

Antisocial behaviour comes in many forms and may include:

Report antisocial behaviour

We encourage you to report antisocial behaviour to our Community Safety Team even if it isn't happening directly to you:

We treat each report confidentially but it helps to provide:

  • your name and address
  • your contact details
  • details of the antisocial behaviour and how it's affecting you.

We aim to contact you within 5 working days.

What happens next

Each case is considered individually and most are resolved with discussion, mediation and warnings. Enforcement action can be taken and other agencies brought in for specific support.
