Anti-Social Behaviour

Nuisance and Anti-Social Behaviour

Tackling nuisance and anti-social behaviour is a priority for Crawley Borough Council. We want to ensure that Crawley is a safe and happy place to live.

What is Neighbour Nuisance and Anti-Social Behaviour?

Neighbour nuisance and anti-social behaviour can take many forms and can include:

This can include:

  • Noisy neighbours
  • Rowdy and nuisance behaviour in residential areas
  • Dog fouling and barking dogs and other animal issues
  • Threatening and intimidating behaviour and verbal abuse
  • Drug dealing and drug use
  • Anti-social use of vehicles
  • Aggressive ball games
  • Graffiti
  • Street drinking

What You Can Do to Help Resolve the Problem

Most neighbour problems can be resolved by talking to each other in the first instance. A friendly approach to make your neighbour aware of the problem is often effective.

If you do not feel comfortable approaching your neighbour directly, try using our friendly Dear Neighbour card (94KB).

If the behaviour is persistent during the day OR during the night, and you do not feel safe approaching your neighbour, or you have tried and the situation has not improved, then please contact us for assistance.

For advice on reducing noise levels within your property, see our useful suggestions .

How to Report Neighbour Nuisance & Anti-Social Behaviour

If you are unsuccessful in resolving the problem yourself, you can contact the council by calling 01293 438438 or by e-mail or completing this e-form .
