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
- Dangerous buildings and walls
- Dog fouling
- Drug paraphernalia (e.g. discarded needles)
- High hedges
- Noise nuisance
If you want to report any of the above forms of anti-social behaviour, please use the online form.
You can also 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). In an emergency, always dial 999.
