Antisocial Behaviour

The responsibility for tackling antisocial behaviour depends on what the problem is. We mainly deal with statutory nuisance (e.g. noise), as defined by acts of parliament, and envirocrime (e.g. graffiti).

Antisocial behaviour is considered to be "Behaviour by an individual or group that results or is likely to result in:-

  • another party feeling personally threatened,
  • a public nuisance, or
  • a detrimental impact upon the environment, or
  • a detrimental effect upon the quality of life of an individual or the community as a whole."

We can deal with problems concerning nuisance and envirocrime.  You can report any of the above or the consequences (e.g. graffiti or litter dropping) to us through our Report it Online form but we may refer your request to or work with another agency such as the Thames Valley Police or a social landlord such as Paradigm Housing.

If what you want to report is not covered please phone the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number 101 or your social landlord.  The Paradigm Housing customer services number is 0300 303 1010.

In an emergency where there is immediate risk to an individual or property please phone 999.

  • Community Trigger
