Gathering evidence

It’s important to gather evidence on antisocial behaviour and noise incidents. It helps us understand: 

  • what the problem is 
  • when it’s happening 
  • who’s involved 
  • how it’s affecting you 

Your evidence can also be used, with your permission, if the case goes to court. 

We'll ask you to upload your evidence when you make an ASB or noise report

ASB Help is a charity helping people suffering with ASB issues. They give detailed information on how to gather evidence (external link)

Incident diary 

Use our  incident diary (PDF, 125KB) to keep a note of all incidents. You can: 

  • complete this on your computer or mobile 
  • print it out and complete by hand 
  • use the headings as a template and keep your own records 

Other evidence 

Other evidence you can gather includes: 

  • photos 
  • videos 
  • written correspondence like: 
    • letters 
    • emails 
    • text messages 
    • social media posts
