Tackling anti social behaviour

Please be a considerate neighbour - six top tips:

  1. DIY: You may be an early riser, but others may not be - consider not mowing the lawn or starting DIY at the crack of dawn.

  2. Parties: Neighbours are less likely to have a problem with a party if they are aware of it in advance.  

  3. Cars: Make sure the music in your car isn't disturbing others.

  4. Alarms: Have a nominated key holder for your property when you are away, who can be contacted quickly if the house alarm goes off.

  5. Stereo & T.V: Position the TV and speakers away from the neighbours wall.  Raise them up off the floor if possible. 

  6. Dogs: Constant barking or whining of a dog can be disturbing to neighbours.

If you decide to talk to the person responsible for anti-social behaviour it may help to consider the following: 

  • Step 1 - Let the person know there is a problem. Be calm and polite as they may not know they are causing you any distress
  • Step 2 - Ask them for some of their time to talk about the problem. You may wish to take a friend with you if you do not want to go on your own
  • If you still feel concerned, write a polite letter to re address the problem - see below.
  • Step 3 - If you still feel concerned, write a polite letter to re address the problem
