At Hundred Houses Society we take anti-social behaviour seriously.
We aim to respond to your initial report in the following timescales:
|Low risk cases||5 working days|
|Medium risk cases||3 working days|
|High risk cases||1 working day|
f a neighbour is causing a nuisance and you cannot sort it out by talking to them, you can contact your Housing Officer. We will listen to you and explain how we can help. We may advise you about other ways of dealing with the problem such as contacting an environmental health officer, the police or the mediation services. We will consider formal or legal action if appropriate.
Many cases can be resolved by communication and advice before they become too serious.
We will investigate cases of:
- Persistent and excessive noise nuisance, such as loud music
- Verbal abuse, intimidation and harassment
- Hate related incidents or crime
- Violence against people or property
- Aggressive/threatening behaviour, language and graffiti
- Domestic abuse
- Nuisance caused by alcohol and drugs
- Using your home unlawfully
- Untaxed/unroadworthy vehicles
- Untidy gardens/litter and flytipping
- Unruly pets
In the majority of cases, we will not treat the following as anti-social behaviour. This is not an exhaustive list.
- Neighbour differences, such as differences of opinion/gossiping
- Everyday living noise e.g. babies crying, footsteps, doors shutting, washing machines operating
- Disputes over parking
- Cooking smells
- One off/occasional parties or barbeques
- People gathering
- Children playing
- DIY at a reasonable time of the day
