We want to create successful communities and want our residents to resolve issues the neighbourly way.
Anti-social behaviour can cover a range of problems including extreme noise, vandalism and damage to property, graffiti, fly-tipping and behaviour related to drug or alcohol abuse. However, some behaviour can be considered as everyday life such as sounds and smells, outdoor playing and one-off parties, looks or stairs and inconsiderate behaviour.
Most people do not realise they are causing a problem and are reasonable if approached in person.
Try talking to the person responsible for whatever is causing you a problem. If things don’t improve, please contact us on 020 7704 2324 to discuss the options available.
As part of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, you can also initiate a review of your case where you think no action has been taken. This is called the ‘Community Trigger’. It is designed to give victims and communities the right to request a review of their case and bring agencies together to take a joined-up, problem-solving approach to find a solution. You should contact Islington Council if you want to use the Community Trigger.
If a crime is committed you should call the police:
- call 999 if it is an emergency and someone is in danger; or
- call 101 to report the crime to your local police station.
- CrimeStoppers where you can give information anonymously on 0800 555 111
You can also call the 24-hour Islington anti-social behaviour hotline on 020 7527 7272.
To help us build a picture of the problems you have experienced, we’ll ask you to keep a record of events. We need these forms in order to be able to take action, so it’s important that you complete them.
Please find the incident reporting form below.
We understand that many people who report nuisance problems wish to remain anonymous because they are afraid they may be targeted or the problems will get worse. We’ll do everything we can to support you, and we’ll treat the information that you give us confidentially whilst we investigate your complaint. However, you need to be aware that this may restrict the action that we can take.
