Anti-social behaviour: How to report it

The information you provide will be given to the appropriate agency or passed to a multi-agency group who deal with anti-social behaviour.

Ask for a review of an anti-social behaviour case

If you feel that no action has been taken over an issue you’ve reported three times in the last six months to us, the police or a registered housing provider, you can ask for a review of your case by completing a community trigger form:

  Reporting leaflet.

You’ll need to provide:

  • details of each time you complained
  • details of who you complained to (name, organisation and/or reference number)
  • information about the anti-social behaviour

We’ll acknowledge receipt of your form within three working days and pass your case to a community trigger panel of representatives from local agencies. The panel will let you know within ten working days whether your case meets their criteria for review. If it does, you’ll be told what action they plan to take to resolve the issue.

If it doesn’t you’ll be told why and you case will continue to be dealt with by the agency you have reported it to.
