What is Neighbour Nuisance and ASB?

What is Neighbour Nuisance and ASB?

There is no generally accepted definition of ASB.  However, following consultation with our tenants and leaseholders, we have adopted a broad definition of ASB as being:

“any behaviour by residents, members of their household or their visitors that causes alarm or distress to another; or behaviour that interferes with the day to day wellbeing, physical or mental health, safety and security of another household or individual”.

Anti-social behaviour may be broadly put  into four main areas and although it does not cover ASB completely, it may give you an idea of the main areas that ASB falls into:

1.Disregard for community/ personal well-being, such as:

  • Noise (especially excessive noise between the hours of 11pm and 7am)
  • Rowdy behaviour
  • Nuisance behaviour
  • Hoax calls
  • Animal related problems (such as dogs barking or fouling issues).

 2. Acts directed at people, such as:

  • Intimidation/ harassment
  • Verbal Abuse
  • Cyber bullying and on line harassment
  • Domestic Abuse.

3. Environmental damage, such as:

  • Criminal damage/ vandalism
  • Litter/rubbish
  • Fly tipping.

4. Misuse of public space:

  • Drugs/substance misuse and dealing
  • Street drinking
  • Prostitution
  • Abandoned cars
  • Vehicle related nuisance and inappropriate vehicle use.
