Anti-social behaviour (ASB) is virtually any intimidating or threatening activity that scares you or damages your quality of life.
- rowdy, noisy behaviour
- 'yobbish' behaviour
- vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting
- dealing or buying drugs on the street
- fly-tipping rubbish
- aggressive begging
- street drinking
- setting off fireworks late at night
Anti-social behaviour doesn't just make life unpleasant. It holds back the regeneration of disadvantaged areas and creates an environment where more serious crime can take hold.
If you are the subject of anti social behaviour please contact the Police.
What we're doing about Anti-Social Behaviour
The Partnership understands the effect that anti-social behaviour has on the community and has developed a number of strategies to deal with it. These include:
- Additional Police Patrols to known hot spots specifically targeting ASB
- Identifying individuals responsible for ASB and encouraging them to agree to an Acceptable Behaviour Agreement (ABA)
- Applying for Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (ASBO) where necessary
- Working with Registered Social Landlords and the Eastbourne Homes to enforce tenancy contracts where ASB involves a tenant
Where can you go if the anti-social behaviour that you are experiencing has not been resolved?
Although different authorities are responsible for dealing with particular types of anti-social behaviour, the Government has given local authorities the responsibility of overseeing anti-social behaviour in general.
If you feel that your ASB issues have not been adequately dealt with please contact the Partnership office by calling 01323 415346 during office hours or e-mail Crime Reduction
