Anti-social behaviour actions

When you report anti-social behaviour to us there are a range of actions we can take depending on the problem.

Action we can take

We take a different approach to solve the problems caused by anti-social behaviour depending on what has happened in each case. The officer dealing with your problem will agree with you the best action to take, which could include:

  • verbal or written warnings to the person or people involved
  • mediation between neighbours or the people involved
  • acceptable behaviour agreements/contracts
  • restorative approaches such as an apology
  • referrals to specialist support organisations and safeguarding organisations
  • court orders or injunctions to prevent further problems
  • possession proceedings including mandatory possession
  • eviction as ordered by the court.

If I fall out with my neighbour

It’s always best to try and agree on how you and your neighbour can get along in the future.

In these circumstances we can offer an independent mediation service.
