Anti-social behaviour means different things to different people.
Some neighbourhood problems can result from differences in the way people live their lives, and aren’t necessarily anti-social behaviour - like using a washing machine early in the morning or children playing in the flat above.
In fact, your neighbours may not realise that what they’re doing is disturbing you so it might be worth approaching them. But don’t pursue it if it ends up in an argument.
Anti-social behaviour does include things like:
- Rowdy behaviour, such as shouting, swearing or fighting
- Intimidation or abuse
- Excessive noise
- Dumping litter or fly tipping
- Drug or alcohol abuse, including buying and selling drugs
- Racial abuse and other hate crimes
