Anti-social behaviour (ASB) is a broad term used to describe day-to-day incidents of crime, nuisance and disorder that intimidates, causes distress or makes someone's life a misery - from littering and vandalism to public drunkenness and noisy or abusive neighbours.
Tackling ASB is a high priority for our Housing team. That's why we recently updated our ASB policy for Council tenants and leaseholders. This policy, approved in June 2021, outlines how we will tackle ASB within Council housing through early intervention, support and enforcement.
Our Tenancy Agreement sets out the way we expect our tenants to behave and, in more serious cases, can provide the means for us to take legal action.
The Agreement details our expectations, in particular that:
If you are experiencing ASB you can report it to us online. Read more about and report ASB.
If you are experiencing persistent and unreasonable noise nuisance you can report it to us online. Read more about and report noise nuisance.
