What is anti-social behaviour?
We describe anti-social behaviour as behaviour that causes alarm, fear or distress to others. It can affect one person or a whole neighbourhood, and can cover lots of things such as illegal and immoral behaviour, violence, harassment or youth nuisance.
Remember, there’s a difference between anti-social behaviour and everyday neighbourhood niggles. We don’t always see eye to eye with our neighbours and things like a noisy one-off party, children playing in the street, pesky pets and parking can sometimes be annoying.
In some cases, having a calm conversation with your neighbour is the best way to solve these sorts of problems. After all, they might not even realise their behaviour is bothering you!
