What is not classed as antisocial behaviour?
There are some activities we consider to be everyday living noises or minor lifestyle differences, rather than acts of antisocial behaviour (ASB). These include:
- Gardening disputes
- Parking disputes where no restrictions are in place
- People flushing their toilet and other living noises
- Children falling out with each other
- Cooking smells
- Noise of a child playing in their own home.
The Government aims to encourage children to play outside as it helps reduce childhood obesity. Unless those playing ball games are carrying out other more serious nuisance, such as verbal abuse or criminal damage, we'll not consider this to be ASB, so we'll not take action against them.
