What is anti-social behaviour, or ASB?
Anti-social behaviour (ASB) includes a wide range of behaviour that causes nuisance or annoyance to our residents, their families, our staff and others living or working in the community. It is also behaviour that causes, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress, or using or threatening to use housing for an unlawful purpose.
It ranges from noise nuisance (such as playing loud music or carrying out noisy activities late at night) to serious crimes (such as drug dealing and violence). It can also include things like vandalism, graffiti or fly-tipping.
However, where there are minor issues considered to be everyday living or minor lifestyle differences, we may not be able to resolve these.
