Anti-social behaviour

Anti-social behaviour

Clackmannanshire Council is committed to tackling anti-social behaviour (ASB) within its communities.

Everyone has a different idea of what antisocial behaviour is. Differences in age, beliefs, health considerations and background may mean that something you consider to be anti-social behaviour may not be viewed as such by someone else.

The Antisocial Behaviour (Scotland) Act 2004 has defined antisocial behaviour as:

'Acting in a manner, or pursuing a course of conduct, that causes or is likely to cause alarm or distress to at least one person not of the same household'

We work in partnership with Police Scotland Ochil View and Paragon Housing Associations to address issues of anti-social behaviour.

Staff from the Tenancy Management Team are able to offer straight-forward advice on a range of issues. We are also able to direct callers to the appropriate Council service for action such as environmental health or to other agencies such as the police, if necessary.

We deal with a range of ASB related issues, including:

  • Drugs and alcohol-related anti-social behaviour
  • Noise nuisance (loud music, noisy parties, noisy pets)
  • Litter and rubbish on housing land
  • Vandalism and Graffiti

Suspected abandoned vehicles on housing land, any incidents of violence, suspected drug dealing, hate crime, nuisance driving or harassment should be reported to Police Scotland who we work in partnership with.

There are also a range of scenarios which, although they can be frustrating, are not classed as Antisocial Behaviour. Unfortunately we are unable to assist with these matters, which can include:

  • Children or young people gathering socially or playing in the street
  • Parking issues
  • Personal disputes between neighbours
  • Every day living/household noise

To effectively tackle anti social behaviour callers need to provide us with as much information as possible:

  • Who is involved
  • Where is it happening
  • What exactly is going on
  • How often

People who are experiencing anti-social behaviour should try and report incidents as they happen. It can also be useful to gather evidence of dates and times of incidents in a diary.

It is Council policy not to disclose the identity of the complainer.
