What is anti social behaviour?

Defining anti-social behaviour

"Behaviour causing distrubance, distress, harm or fear which has a significant effect on people's lifestyles and routines. Persistence, intensity, and the numbers involved are relevant factors. The behaviour need not be a breach of the criminal law."

Examples of what we would consider as anti-social behaviour What we may not consider as anti-social behaviour What you should consider
  • Noise Nuisance
  • Harassment or intimidation
  • Damage, vandalism and graffiti
  • Criminal behaviour
  • Any race/hate motivated offences
  • Verbal abuse
  • Threats of violence and harm
  • Fly-tipping and communal refuge
  • Dog fouling (on our land)
  • Noises classes as activities of daily living
  • Children playing football (unless nuisance is being caused)
  • Litter
  • General parking issues
  • Youths simply "hanging around"
  • Over-grown trees or any other foliage.
  • Can the issue be resolved by approaching the perpetrator directly?
  • If the issue is regarding low level nuisance, was it a one off incident?
  • Is there a well balanced degree of tolerance and consideration between both parties?
