Reporting Anti social behaviour

(We recognise that anti-social behaviour (ASB) can have a serious effect on quality of life, we treat all reports very seriously.

ASB covers a very wide range of behaviour, this is dealt with by a number of Council departments. The table below outlines which department is responsible for the different types of behaviour.

We understand that reporting incidents can make witnesses feel nervous about the next steps, however the Council has a very successful track record in resolving cases.

Therefore, if you are experiencing problems we would encourage you to contact us to discuss how we can help you and what the next steps could be.
