Anti-Social Behaviour

We want you to feel settled and safe in your home, but we know that sometimes this is not always the case. Whether you are one of our tenants or a resident, we work in partnership with you, and agencies like the Police and Durham County Council, to take swift action to resolve issues of anti-social behaviour.

We know anti-social behaviour can have a serious detrimental impact on you and our communities and that’s why we take all reports seriously. We really want you to tell us about anti-social behaviour so we can take appropriate action.

What next?

2. A member of our housing team will be responsible for supporting you with your ASB case.

3. We will agree actions to be taken with you and provide regular updates.

4. We will support you and work with our community partners to deal with perpetrators.

5. We will let you know the outcome.
