Dealing with anti-social behaviour problems in your area

Anti-social behaviour is any form of behaviour which causes, or is likely to cause, alarm or distress to other residents. This can include noise nuisance, threats and disorder which have a detrimental effect on the lives of others.

What can you do?

Speak up! If you’re experiencing problems with anti-social behaviour, you should report it – it’s the only way the problem will be tackled. Keeping a diary to record incidents, dates and times, will help in providing details to investigators.

Who to contact

You can call the 24-hour anti-social behaviour hotline on 0800 389 1105.

Anti-social behaviour can be reported by using the Anti-social behaviour reporting form on the South Lanarkshire council website.

You will receive acknowledgement of your complaint within three working days, and council staff will interview you within five working days. You should expect to be notified of the outcome of their investigation within 20 working days. These timescales may alter if the matter is urgent or if other agencies are involved.

The Anti-social investigation team will investigate serious problems, working alongside local area housing offices to find solutions.

The team can help mediate between the parties and can take action such as drawing up Acceptable Behaviour Contracts or pursuing Anti-social Behaviour Orders.

You can also contact your local area housing office.
