Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of unacceptable activity that affects the lives of many people on a daily basis. It often leaves victims feeling helpless, desperate and with a seriously reduced quality of life on our estates.
Anti-social behaviour is defined as behaviour, whether or not it is itself criminal, 'which causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress' to other people including behaviour which puts people in fear of crime.
We will investigate all reports of anti-social behaviour and take them seriously. You have the right to live in your home without fear of intimidation, nuisance or harassment.

Anti-social behaviour policy
The Housing Act 1996 requires all social landlords to publish their policies and procedures for dealing with anti-social behaviour. Our general policy statement outlines our general approach to anti-social behaviour. Our procedures include information on types of anti-social behaviour and how we:
- handle reports
- support you
- respond to anti-social behaviour incidents and keep you updated

The community trigger is a process which allows members of the community to ask the community safety partnership to review the responses to their complaints of anti-social behaviour. Registered housing providers (social landlords) are also included.
