Antisocial behaviour

Anti social behaviour can cause harassment, alarm or distress and typically includes:

  • hate crime (due to race, religion,disability, sexual orientation or transgender identity)
  • threats of violence
  • domestic violence
  • drug production/supply/use/smells
  • dangerous dogs
  • verbal abuse
  • alcohol related nuisance
  • intimidation/harassment

  • light pollution

How to report

  • Call our ASB hotline on 0121 717 1500

If I complain, what happens next?

  • an investigation will take place
  • attempts will be made to get the perpetrator to modify their behaviour, this may include them being offered to enter into an Acceptable Behaviour Agreement
  • if this fails then court action may be taken to prevent further ASB from occurring which may include an injunction, closure order or a possession order

In addition to any other criminal court action, there may be civil court action to protect you and the community.

Under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, an injunction may be required to tackle anti-social behaviour. The injunction can be used against anyone over the age of 10 years and for people living in private accommodation and owning their own properties (for any tenure), not just council tenants. If breached, it can result in imprisonment.

Community Trigger

If you are a victim of persistent anti-social behaviour (ASB) and the response from the agencies has not resolved the ASB you are able to request a multi-agency case review of your case where a local threshold is met.

The Community Trigger is a victim led initiated process which requires local authorities, the police, housing providers and local health teams to jointly deal with anti-social behaviour
