Antisocial behaviour

Antisocial behaviour can include issues relating to:

  • Noise nuisance
  • Animal nuisance
  • Harassment
  • Rubbish accumulation
  • Criminal behaviour including hate crime, domestic abuse, drug dealing and criminal damage

To resolve issues quickly, where possible we encourage you to speak to the person causing the antisocial behaviour and explain the effect it is having on you. Stay calm and try to be patient. Where problems continue, we can help.

Report antisocial behaviour

  • Call 0191 433 5353 and speak to your Neighbourhood Housing Team
  • Use our confidential online form (noise complaints only)

To help, tell us:

  • What happened, giving a description of the incident/issue
  • Where it happened, address, location
  • When it happened, time and date
  • Who was responsible, their name & address, a description of the individuals
  • Why it happened, were you targeted, does it affect the community
  • How it affected you

If you witness a crime, contact Northumbria Police on 101 for non-urgent matters or 999 in an emergency.

Not all issues are antisocial behaviour. Things such as noise from washing machines or Hoovers, DIY during sociable hours, a baby crying or children playing on a trampoline. We won't generally investigate these types of issues, unless they cause a significant nuisance.
