Noise - Anti Social Behaviour
Noise Anti-Social Behaviour
We want our residents to live in a safe, secure and comfortable environment. Tenants are responsible for their own behaviour as well as that of their visitors.
Anti-social behaviour can involve:
Fly tipping. Littering.
Out of control dogs.
Playing loud music late at night.
We would not generally consider household noise such as children playing to be anti-social behaviour.

Our tenancy conditions are intended to make sure that you or your visitors are considerate to those people living around you. Most of the homes that we provide are very close together and some have shared areas. This means that a certain amount of noise and differences in lifestyle should be expected. Sometimes these differences may lead to a disagreement between neighbours. In most cases you should try to sort out these problems yourselves. Raising the issue with your neighbour and explaining the effect it is having on you is usually the best way forward. Your neighbour may not be aware they are disturbing you and by speaking directly a compromise may be reached.
If you’re not able to solve the problem on your own, or do not feel able to speak to your neighbour, then please, discuss the issue with your housing officer. You may be referred to a mediation service or provided other advice to resolve the problem.
