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 you should do

  • contact us giving details of the events
  • Dial 999 in an emergency if you think there is an immediate threat to life or property and report the incident to the Police. If your concern relates to a criminal matters and requires police attention, please dial 101 or report the incident online
  • 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
