  • Neighbourhood wardens

    Neighbourhood wardens work to improve the quality of life for residents by reducing the level of anti-social behaviour and the fear of crime.

  • Neighbourhood Watch

    This page explains how to join or start a Neighbourhood Watch scheme, and how they work.

  • Noise complaints

    We are responsible for dealing with some noise complaints that are classed as a 'statutory nuisance'. If the noise is causing a statutory nuisance, we will try to resolve the matter informally. However, if this approach fails, we have the legal powers to serve an abatement notice requiring the nuisance to stop.
