What can the council do about anti-social behaviour?
We have a policy and procedures for dealing with anti-social behaviour. You should contact your local housing office. Housing staff will fully investigate your complaint and take action where appropriate. Actions of a criminal nature, for example, verbal abuse, assault, harassment, vandalism should also be reported to the police. From graffiti to noisy neighbours, from dumped TV sets and fridges to intimidation from gangs of youths, there are new measures in force to deal with these and many of the other issues that can cause misery. Acts of antisocial behaviour can generate fear and distress for people, particularly the elderly, minority ethnic communities and vulnerable community groups. Information about Antisocial Behaviour more generally is available at www.antisocialbehaviourscotland.com We welcome the measures provided by the Antisocial Behaviour Act and are committed to working closely with other services and agencies to tackle antisocial behaviour.
