What is anti-social behaviour?

We consider anti-social behaviour (ASB) to be deliberate and intentional acts (including the failure to address inconsiderate behaviour) that may result in nuisance, harassment, alarm and distress.

Inconsiderate behaviour is day to day disturbances or issues like occasional door slamming, noise from children playing outside and low level noise from individuals enjoying their garden, which will not be defined as ASB.

Tools to tackle anti-social behaviour

We will soon be able to provide you with the tools to resolve day-to-day issues and ASB yourself through support from Paradigm staff and other agencies. Where ASB is occurring we believe all involved should play a part in tackling the issue. We strongly believe in self resolution and will promote and encourage this course of action where it is appropriate.
