Anti Social Behaviour
Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) is any behaviour that causes, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress or which causes or is likely to cause a nuisance, annoyance or disturbance to people living in your neighbourhood.
Examples of anti-social behaviour include excessive noise; nuisance caused by animals such as dogs; vandalism; racist or homophobic abuse or graffiti.
We know how damaging Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) can be to communities and neighbourhoods and are committed to tackling ASB and supporting victims to help make where you live a safer, more enjoyable place to live.
If you witness, or are experiencing any ASB, it is important that you tell us. Without evidence, it is harder for us to put a stop to the behaviour and we will of course support you.
You can also report ASB by phone on freephone 0800 218 2000 (0161 909 6559 local rate for mobiles).
