Anti-social behaviour policy and procedure

Anti-social behaviour (ASB) is a broad term used to describe the day-to-day incidents of crime, nuisance and disorder that make many people's lives a misery. These include:

  • litter and vandalism
  • public drunkenness
  • aggressive dogs
  • noisy or abusive neighbours

Such a wide range of behaviours means that responsibility for dealing with anti-social behaviour is shared between a number of agencies, particularly the police, councils and social landlords.

This policy and procedure defines our approach to tackling ASB, in partnership with other statutory agencies.
