A to Z
Housing - community safety: Outline
The peaceful enjoyment of your home depends to a large extent on the willingness of you and your neighbours to respect one another and to try and accept some differences in lifestyles and live peacefully together.
In some instances however, the actions of a few individuals, either through thoughtlessness or deliberate actions will be unreasonable and unacceptable and should stop.
It is expected that someone experiencing nuisance (the "complainant") will initially try and resolve the issue directly with the person causing the nuisance (the "perpetrator") before asking us to get involved. If problems persist however the council will investigate all reasonable complaints in accordance with its Anti Social Behaviour Policy and Procedure.
