What is anti-social behaviour?

The Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2004 provides that a person engages in anti-social behaviour if they:-

  • Act in a manner that causes, or is likely to cause, alarm or distress; or

  • Pursue a course of conduct that causes, or is likely to cause, alarm or distress to at least one person not of the same household as them.

“Conduct” includes speech; and a course of conduct must involve conduct on at least two occasions.

Anti-social behaviour is likely to include:
excessive noise, dumping rubbish, verbal abuse, intimidation, harassment, domestic violence, uncontrolled dogs, drug dealing, vandalism, uncontrolled children, graffiti, crime, prostitution, work incompatible with a residential area, disturbing neighbours, frequent late parties, drug and alcohol misuse resulting in anti-social behaviour.
