Certain behaviours are unacceptable in our homes and our community.
We have a dedicated ASB team working with housing officers and the police to prevent and stop anti-social behaviour in our communities.
Nuisance and ASB is any behaviour that causes or is likely to cause fear, alarm and distress.
Most neighbours live happily and show tolerance to others. However, disputes can happen. If you’re experiencing ASB or harassment, make sure to report it. If you don’t then we can’t do anything to help.

Northumbria Police has launched a new tool called Northumbria Connected to engage with local communities.
This ensures that as a police force, they are delivering on the issues that affect you.
Neighbourhood Policing Teams want to better understand the issues that impact you the most where you live so they can shape their response to tackle them effectively.
The tool allows you to hear about news in a way that you choose. By signing up to Northumbria Connected, you can decide on the updates you will receive in either text or email.
A short survey will then follow to help the police better understand what is impacting you and your community.
After all, no one will know better what is happening in your community than you!
Signing up is really easy. Simply subscribe online at https://northumbriaconnected.co.uk and start to help shape policing in your area today.
Domestic abuse – we’re here to help
We do not tolerate domestic abuse and no one should live in fear of it. That’s why we help and support any person experiencing it or feeling threatened.
Priority is always given to the safety of people suffering from domestic abuse. We provide victims with a quick and sensitive response and deal swiftly and effectively with perpetrators.
As a landlord, we’re aware of the pressure and impact domestic abuse can put on a family home, so we’re happy to use the courts to evict the abusers from our properties.
