We need your help
To enable us to tackle anti-social behaviour, we need evidence. If you have previously advised us about anti-social behaviour, you can download diary sheets here to record on-going incidents of such behaviour. Diary sheets are important ways of helping us to address this issue, as they form the basis of our evidence – so it is important that they are filled in accurately and with as much information as possible.
Noise complaints are by far the most common complaint, we suggest if there is no threat to you and you feel safe to do so that you talk to your neighbour, think about what you might say before you approach them. It the noise persists you need to talk to the Local Council’s Environmental Health department. Unless the noise is proven we will not be able to take any action.
We work in partnership with other agencies to resolve issues of anti-social behaviour quickly and effectively. When you report an anti-social behaviour issue to bpha, we might signpost you to another agency that is better placed to deal with the type of nuisance being caused. We will be in contact with them so that we can take appropriate action.
