We will work together with you our customers and other agencies to help make your communities better places to live.

We aim to use prevention and early intervention in our approach to help resolve issues between neighbours.

If you are experiencing a problem with your neighbour, talking to them is often the simplest way to resolve things before asking us to get involved.

What is considered to be Anti-social behaviour?

Anti-social behaviour (ASB) can include:

  • Noise nuisance, which may include loud music for example

  • Hate-related incidents which is a form of harassment based on race, gender, disability status, religion, age, sexual orientation

  • Vandalism and/or damage to property

  • Violence

Serious incidents should always be reported to the police in the first instance

How we deal with reports of anti-social behaviour

You can contact us via our online form, email or telephone or by visiting our office in Evesham.

You will be contacted by your Neighbourhood Officer within 5 days or within 1 day if the complaint is of a serious nature (Always call 999 in an emergency/you suspect a crime has been committed)

We will agree an action plan with you where appropriate, and we will work with you to help achieve resolution.  This may include the involvement of other agencies and may also include the use of mediation.  We will also agree with you how you would like to be kept informed about your case.

It is important to know that in most cases, all other interventions will have been attempted before legal action is considered.  We do not have the power to end a tenancy, only the Courts have that power based upon the evidence presented.

What is not considered as anti-social behaviour

Sometimes other people’s behaviour is inconsiderate, but this does not mean it is considered to be anti-social behaviour.

Examples of behaviour that may not automatically be considered anti-social include:

  • Children playing

  • Babies crying

  • Gossip

  • Social Media disputes

  • Gestures or ‘looks’

  • One off parties

  • General domestic noise at reasonable times

It is important to remember that people live in different ways and tolerance levels can be different. Although behaviour may sometimes be seen as inconsiderate it is not necessarily anti-social behaviour.

We will be clear with you on what issues can be dealt with as anti-social behaviour and offer advice as appropriate.
