Anti-social behaviour

Anti-social behaviour describes incidents of crime, nuisance and disorder. These issues can occur over time and can impact your day to day life. Anti-social behaviour includes:

  • litter
  • graffiti
  • flytipping
  • dog fouling
  • threatening and intimidating behaviour
  • excessive noise

You can report a number of these issues on the Litter, street cleaning and dog fouling and Noise and other nuisances pages.

How to report anti-social behaviour
