Anti-social behaviour

Anti–social behaviour is ‘behaviour causing harassment, alarm or distress’ to members of the public. It is a broad term describing day-to-day incidents of crime, nuisance and disorder that impact negatively on the quality of life of our communities. It covers a wide range of behaviours and can include:

  • shouting, swearing and fighting
  • verbal abuse
  • harassment and intimidation
  • noise
  • anti-social drinking and substance misuse
  • animal nuisance
  • inappropriate use of vehicles
  • vandalism and criminal damage

Disputes with neighbours can start over low level matters that may not be considered anti-social in and of themselves. If the problems escalate, they can become anti-social behaviour.

Anti-social behaviour is not the responsibility of any individual agency. We work with our partners, including West Midlands Police and social landlords, to tackle anti-social behaviour across the borough.

You can report anti-social behaviour.
