Report Anti-Social Behaviour

Oct 21st, 2016


In the year ending June 2015, 67% of the Anti Social Behaviour (ASB) incidents categorised by the police were identified as nuisance; 26% as personal; and 6% as environmental.


The new set of 3 simplified categories for ASB, introduced in March 2012, are categorised as:

  1. “Nuisance” captures incidents where an act, condition, thing or person causes trouble, annoyance, irritation, inconvenience, offence or suffering to the local community in general rather than to individual victims.
  2. “Personal” captures incidents that are perceived as either deliberately targeted at an individual or group, or having an impact on an individual or group rather than the community at large.
  3. “Environmental” captures incidents where individuals and groups have an impact on their surroundings, including natural, built and social environments.

It is a well known fact that over 80% of those who actively participate in anti-social activity rent their homes in the UK, therefore private landlords play an important role in tackling anti-social behaviour within their communities.

  • ☆ But what if a landlord doesn’t know about these problems?

  • ☆ How can they address them if they are unaware of the situation?

They should be able to rely on their tenants to report these kind of issues, but many good tenants don’t bother reporting these issues to their council. The majority of the time it’s because they are apathetic about their local authority actually doing anything or for fear of retaliation from whoever they are reporting.

This is why the NLCE offer good tenants a free Anti Social Reporting option.

It also takes the lengthy process away from local authorities, to let them get on with doing what they do best. We all want safe and harmonious communities – The NLCE ASB Reporting system helps us all achieve this goal, together.

This form must also be issued by NLCE members to all their existing tenants and to any new tenant upon the commencement of the tenancy, to make them aware of their responsibility towards anti-social behaviour.
