What is anti-social behaviour?
Anti-social behaviour can be:
- rowdy, noisy behaviour in otherwise quiet neighbourhoods
- night-time noise from houses or gardens, especially between 11pm and 7am
- threatening, drunken or 'yobbish' behaviour
- vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting
- dealing or buying drugs on the street
- litter and fly-tipping rubbish
- aggressive begging
- drinking in the street
- setting off fireworks late at night
- vehicle-related nuisance
It can leave you feeling intimidated, angry, and frightened. Organisations across Suffolk are here to help.
What to do if you're affected by anti-social behaviour
If anti-social behaviour is a problem in your area, you could:
- talk to your neighbours to find out if they're affected as well
- if you feel comfortable doing so, talk to the person causing the problem as they may not realise how it is affecting you
- discuss the problem with your local councillor
How to report anti-social behaviour
- report an anti-social problem to your local district or borough council:
- call 101, your local police force's non-emergency number
- tell your landlord or residents' association about the situation
- contact your local neighbourhood policing team, or attend one of their regular meetings
What to do if it remains a problem
If you have already reported ongoing anti-social behaviour to the police, your district or borough council, or your housing provider, and you feel that no effective action has been taken to resolve it, you can activate the Community Trigger and ask us to request a review of your case.
