What is antisocial behaviour? The legal definition of Antisocial Behaviour (ASB) is: Acting in a manner that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household.
Reporting antisocial behaviour
It is important that low level nuisance is dealt with by the appropriate agency and not allowed to get worse. If you don’t report it, the authorities cannot help resolve problems. Information will be treated confidentially and your personal details will not be disclosed unless Calderdale Council have your agreement.
Vulnerable victims of antisocial behaviour
If you, or someone you know is vulnerable, for example due to physical disability or learning difficulties and experiencing antisocial behaviour, Calderdale Council can help.
Please contact the Anti Social Behaviour Partnership team on phone: 01422 288001.
