Report antisocial behaviour or noise

Before making a complaint

We may not be able to investigate incidents of low-level antisocial behaviour (ASB) that only happen once, like:

  • DIY noise
  • noisy neighbours
  • shouting insults
  • damage to property

Keep a log of all incidents and only make a complaint if the issue occurs more than 3 separate times in the past month. We will not investigate your complaint any more urgently if you submit 3 complaints of the same incident. 

Before you report ASB or noise, please make sure:

How to report ASB or noise 

You can make an ASB or noise complaint: 

  • online 
  • via our noise app – noise complaint only  
  • by calling us 
  • in person 

Please be aware that often the quickest route to making a complaint is to complete the online e-form. If you are calling, or making a visit in person, the officer responding will complete the e-form which will then be sent through to the team to assess. 


You’ll need the following information about the incident(s): 

  • when it happened – date and time 
  • who was affected 
  • how the incident made you feel 
  • any evidence you gathered 
  • police reference number if you reported it to the police 
  • if the incident involves a number of different aspects of anti social behaviour - ie verbal abuse, physical abuse etc, please select the one area that affects you the most, and then describe the other issues in the text box provided.
