  • domestic abuse
  • physical violence
  • litter/rubbish/fly-tipping
  • garden nuisance
  • misuse of shared areas
  • prostitution/sexual acts/kerb crawling
  • other criminal behaviour

We strongly encourage you to report any incidents. If you think a crime has been committed, please contact the police. Crimes should be reported to the police as soon as possible by calling the police non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers 0800 555111.

If you think it’s a genuine emergency call 999.

If you live in a council-owned property you can report antisocial behaviour to us by using our housing team contact form online to contact your Tenancy Case Manager.
