London Borough of Croydon

The definition of 'anti-social behaviour' is rarely straightforward. What constitutes a nuisance or annoyance to one person may be of little concern to another. We feel it is more appropriate to define anti-social behaviour as events on estates involving criminal behaviour, drug dealing and unprovoked assault. This is not a comprehensive list but gives an indication of the type of behaviour within this category.

What should you do?

  • contact us giving details of the events
  • if you have suffered physical assault or damage to your property you should contact the police immediately
  • if the police have been involved make a note of the log number as this may be needed to provide evidence
  • keep diary sheets and make an accurate record of events
  • you may be required to attend court and give evidence.

What we will do

  • we will write to the tenant causing the problem. We will not reveal your identity
  • liaise with the police if appropriate
  • issue diary sheets and monitor the situation
  • in extreme cases of intimidation we may employ professional witnesses
  • if there is sufficient evidence we will take action either under Housing Legislation or the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.
