Anti social behaviour and nuisance

Tackling anti social behaviour is a priority for the County Council and the other public and voluntary agencies it works with to improve community safety.

Examples may include:

  • Rowdy or noisy behaviour in the community
  • Vandalism, graffiti and fly posting
  • Loutish behaviour
  • Fly tipping or dumping of rubbish
  • Street drinking
  • Nuisance neighbours

What isn't anti social behaviour?

  • Noise from children playing
  • Personal differences 
  • Family disputes
  • Normal living noises, such as flushing toilets and closing doors.

When incidents are reported, solutions may include issuing equipment like personal alarms, window alarms or better door and window locks for repeat and vulnerable victims.

Diversionary and preventative tactics can be put in place for problem locations and enforcement action taken or referral to support services made where necessary for offenders with drug and alcohol or mental health issues.
