What is Anti-social behaviour?
Anti-social behaviour (ASB)is any aggressive, intimidating or destructive activity by an individual or group that disrupts, damages or destroys someone else’s quality of life. It can include problems on the street, such as drunken or rowdy behaviour, drug dealing, aggressive begging and groups of people intimidating others in public.
Neighbours can exhibit anti-social behaviour by playing loud music, keeping intimidating dogs, making threats or harassing those living nearby.
Abandoning cars, misusing fireworks, fly-tipping, graffiti and damaging private property are also types of anti-social behaviour.
There are however, some behaviours generally considered reasonable, such as children playing, everyday noise from washing machines and lawn mowers, and noise from DIY projects (unless carried out at an unreasonable time of night or day).
