Anti-social behaviour

WECH take reports of anti-social behaviour extremely seriously. We believe that every resident has the right to enjoyment of life in their home, as long as they do not cause a nuisance or affect their neighbours or community.

We want to make sure that your home is a peaceful and safe place to live. As a result, we play a key role in tackling unacceptable behaviour and neighbour nuisance.

If you feel that you are in immediate danger, you should call the police on 999.
