Anti-Social Behaviour

South Holland District Council is committed to tackling Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) and supporting victims and witnesses. We know that ASB can affect a person's quality of life and that it is often targeted at those most vulnerable in our community.

What is Anti-Social Behaviour?

asbAnti-Social Behaviour is the broad term used to describe a range of nuisances, disorder and crime that affects people's daily lives. There is no single definition of anti-social behaviour but instead a series of different definitions for different purposes, introduced through the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014. South Holland District Council will use these definitions alongside our partner agencies including the Police, to determine whether anti-social behaviour has occurred and if so, take the necessary action in line with our Icon for pdf Anti-Social Behaviour Strategy [779.98KB].

 

How to report Anti-Social Behaviour?

The  Icon for pdf Anti-Social Behaviour Leaflet [2.65MB] gives examples of anti-social behaviour and what can happen to those who commit anti-social behaviour.  You can make a report of incidents of anti-social behaviour via our Customer Services team on 01775 761161 or you can use our Anti-social behaviour reporting form.

If you report anti-social behaviour you may be asked to complete an Icon for pdf Incident Diary [84.77KB], giving details of what you have been experiencing. The Incident Diary help the officer to evaluate the extent of the problem and may if necessary be used as evidence if formal action is subsequently taken.

Some issues such as noise nuisance, fly tipping and dog fouling are dealt with by other departments within the Council.

Community Trigger

The Community Trigger enables victims or someone acting on their behalf, businesses to community groups to request a review if they are unhappy with the response to their complaints and they meet the locally defined threshold.
