What we can do about anti-social behaviour

Salford City Council recognises that anti-social behaviour can have a significant impact on the lives of residents if left unchallenged. We will work with you to tackle the problem and reduce offending.

The action we take will depend on the nature of your complaint. Below are some examples of the kinds of things we can do to resolve your issue:

  • Speak to the people who are causing you problems
  • Send warning letters and carry out warning interviews
  • Use acceptable behaviour agreements signed by the perpetrator to say that they will not behave anti-socially in the future
  • Offer independent mediation if you are involved in a dispute with your neighbour
  • Work in partnership with other agencies, such as youth services or environmental services to help resolve your complaint
  • In more serious cases, take legal action including civil injunctions, criminal behaviour orders, community protection notices and public spaces protection orders

We can't do it without you

In order to be able to investigate your complaint effectively and take action we need you to help us by:

  • Making a detailed diary of events when asked to do so
  • Being available to meet or talk with us on a regular basis
  • Working in partnership with us to resolve your problem
