Anti-social behaviour

Anti-social behaviour is defined within the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 as behaviour which has "caused or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not from the same household as himself."

The Council undertakes a range of duties in connection with anti-social behaviour. This includes:

Abandoned shopping and luggage trolleys
Abandoned vehicles
Bonfires
Dangerous buildings and walls
Dog fouling
Drug paraphernalia (e.g. discarded needles)
Fallen trees
Fly-tipping
Graffiti
High hedges
Noise nuisance

If you want to report any of the above forms of anti-social behaviour, please use the online form. Alternatively, call the Customer Service Centre on 01462 474000 between Monday to Friday, 9am and 5pm.

The North Herts Community Safety Partnership has produced minimum standards to highlight what you can expect from us when dealing with anti-social behaviour.

For other forms of anti-social behaviour (e.g. vandalism), please contact Hertfordshire Police (non emergency number 101, 24 hours, 7 days a week).
Remember in an emergency, always dial 999.
