Anti-Social Behaviour

 

We aim to tackle anti-social behaviour (ASB) in order to create sustainable communities. Contact Us to report any ASB incidents, our Contact Centre is 24/7.

Anti-social behaviour can leave you feeling alarmed, harassed or distressed. It can include:

  • Vandalism, graffiti, or other deliberate damage to property
  • Teenagers hanging around on the streets
  • Rubbish or litter
  • Drug use or dealing
  • Drunk or rowdy behaviour
  • Noisy neighbours
  • Abandoned, dangerous or burnt out vehicles.

Our Tenancy Enforcement Team will enforce the responsibilities set out in the Tenancy Agreement, to make sure you can enjoy your home, and live in peace and quiet.

If you need to report an incident or if you need advice, please Contact Us. We can arrange to meet with you at any safe location to agree a short term plan. We will not reveal your identity without your permission.

There are a number of actions that our officers can take to help you, including mediation, warnings, Acceptable Behaviour Contracts, or legal action.

We work with Merseyside Police and Wirral Council number of partners to help tackle ASB.
