Reporting Anti-Social Behaviour
To report anti-social behaviour, when it is not an emergency,
you can call:
Registered Social Landlords
If you are a tenant of a Registered Social Landlord or Housing
Association, you can contact your landlord as they have powers to
tackle anti-social behaviour too. The Respect Standard for Housing
Management was introduced to ensure landlords tackle anti-social
behaviour and promote respect in local communities. The Respect
Standard outlines how landlords should respond to anti-social
behaviour and what measures are needed to support community efforts
at tackling anti-social behaviour.
If you are a resident affected by anti-social behaviour involving a
private tenant living in a privately rented property
please contact Merseyside Police and St Helens Council.
It is essential that calls regarding anti-social behaviour are
reported to the Police and recorded on their system via 101 or 999
if an emergency.
Once an address has been identified as a problem for the
community, arrangements will be made for Merseyside Police and St
Helens Council to do a joint visit to speak with the
tenant. These tenants are then advised that if their
anti-social behaviour continues, their private landlord will be
contacted which could potentially lead to their eviction or an
anti-social behaviour closure order of their home.
If you are a private landlord and you are contacted by St Helens
Council regarding the behaviour of your private tenant you will be
advised and supported accordingly.
