Anti Social Behaviour

What is anti social behaviour?
There is no precise definition of anti social behaviour.  Broadly, it is acting in a way that causes or likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.  To be anti social behaviour, the behaviour must be persistent.

Anti-social behaviour is either the tenant/owner, members of the household or visitors who display  behaviour such as:

  • Intimidating neighbours and others through threats or actual violence.
  • Harassment.
  • verbal abuse.
  • Harassment on the grounds of race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or disability.
  • Noise.
  • Dumping of rubbish.
  • Animal nuisance, including dog fouling.
  • Vandalism, property damage and graffiti.
