We are aware that there has been a general increase in anti-social behaviour and that residents may be uncertain as to whether, or how, to report it.
Maldon District Council has a Community Safety Team and their website entry is below, which has a good definition of anti-social behaviour (essentially anything which causes you nuisance or aggravation) and a link to report it.
The more reports which are received the greater the resources directed towards stopping the offender(s).  Reporting online removes you from risk.

Anti-Social Behaviour

All our residents, visitors and business owners have the right to enjoy a secure and peaceful environment. We are fully committed to supporting those who are experiencing anti-social behaviour and helping them resolve their concerns.

Anti-Social Behaviour is defined in the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 as a person or persons acting in such a way:

  • “Conduct that has caused, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress to any person”
  • “Conduct capable of causing nuisance or annoyance to a person in relation to that person’s occupation of residential premises, or”
  • “Conduct capable of causing housing-related nuisance or annoyance to any person”

Reducing Anti-Social Behaviours is an agreed priority of the Maldon District Community Safety Partnership (MDCSP)

Tackling Anti-Social Behaviour and its root causes can be very complex, requiring strong local partnerships and effective use of resources.

Within the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Police Act 2014, the Government gave Local Authorities, Registered Social Landlords and the Police, various powers to tackle Anti-Social Behaviour, empower victims and take swift action against perpetrators.

The Maldon District Council Anti-Social Behaviour Policy sets out how we will deal with reports of anti-social behaviour, examples of anti-social behaviour and partners we work with. Please click here for Maldon District Council Anti-Social Behaviour Policy.
