St Leger Homes of Doncaster acknowledges that there is more than one definition of anti-social behaviour (ASB) but it favours the definition as stated in the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003.
"Conduct which is capable of causing nuisance or annoyance to any person and which directly or indirectly relates to, or affects the housing management functions of the landlord"
Anti-social Behaviour can be split into three main themes as listed below:
1. Neighbour problems
These are disputes that can occur between two or more neighbours and cover complaints about noise, verbal abuse, boundary disputes, harassment and intimidation, nuisance children, damage to property and barking dogs.
2. Neighbourhood problems
These affect more people living in a neighbourhood and include such things as graffiti, dog fouling, fly tipping, nuisance gangs of youths, off-road motor cycling and abandoned vehicles.
3. Crime problems
Problems include burglary of homes, criminal damage, drug dealing, car crime, arson, racial incidents and hate crime, public disorder offences and acts of violence.
