Anti Social Behaviour
How to be a Good Neighbour
Weaver Vale Housing Trust wants to help create great neighbourhoods where people want to live. You can help us achieve this by being considerate to others living around you.
To be a good neighbour, please treat other people as you would like to be treated. Here are some tips:
- Do not leave rubbish out on the wrong day, in hallways, or where it could cause a problem for others
- Do not cause a nuisance to your neighbours or let anyone living with you or visiting you do so.
- Neighbours should not have to put up with loud music, swearing, fights, music from car radios and other disturbances.
- If you are having a party or barbeque, tell your neighbours. Keep the noise down and ask visitors to be quiet when they leave. Most neighbours will not mind an occasional party, but they will mind if you often have parties or groups of friends or family in your home making too much noise.
- Control your pets. Do not leave dogs alone to bark, or leave your pets where they can cause a nuisance.
- Weaver Vale Housing Trust insists that tenants ask our permission before keeping a pet, especially if the animal is a dog or cat or could be dangerous. We sometimes refuse permission, so it is always best to ask first.
Please accept that there will sometimes be noise from other properties.
If you have a complaint about nuisance or anti-social behaviour, we encourage you to try to resolve the matter by discussing it in a careful and tactful way with the person causing the nuisance.
It is possible that the person does not even realise they, or a member of their family, are causing you a problem.
If this fails then contact your Tenancy Management Officer for more advice. We will respond to all reports of anti-social behaviour within 7 working days. Very serious incidents will be attended to within 24 hours. Please call us on 0300 303 9848.
