1. What is anti social behaviour?

Anti social behaviour is virtually any intimidating, nuisance, inconsiderate or threatening activity that affects your quality of life.

Examples include:

  • rowdy, nuisance, drunken or inconsiderate behaviour
  • noise
  • vandalism
  • graffiti
  • fly posting
  • dog fouling
  • litter and fly tipping rubbish
  • setting off fireworks late at night
  • abandoned vehicles

Anti social behaviour doesn't just make life unpleasant but it has a negative effect on people's lives. Together with our partner agencies such as the police, probation service and Devon Youth Service we are committed to tackling such behaviour.

If you are concerned that someone is a victim of anti social behaviour please visit the Victim Care website.

A Community Trigger is a route for victims and communities to request a review of their anti social behaviour case.
