Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) can blight the lives of local residents and although not a large problem in Wealden, agencies work together to tackle it when it occurs through the Safer Wealden Partnership.
If you are experiencing ASB, in the first place you should contact Sussex Police, dial 101.
If you are a council tenant please speak to your housing officer: Contact my Housing Officer – Wealden District Council – Wealden District Council however, If there is an immediate threat to you or your property you must call the Police on 999.
The Community Trigger
Under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 a new process has been introduced for people who do not consider that any action has been taken to deal with their complaints about anti-social behaviour or hate crime. Further information can be found on our community trigger webpage.
