Serving Chilham, Old Wives Lees & Shottenden 
Anti-social behaviour comes in many different guises and as a Parish Council, we think it is important that you know just what is considered and ASB, and how and where you can report incidences. Covered by the Crime and Policing Act 2014 ASB is considered any conduct that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to a person’s normal living and enjoyment of their home, garden or neighbourhood. 
There is a fine line between neighbourly disputes and ASB, but in general in our community noise nuisance such as loud music or persistent shouting, rowdy, loutish behaviour, drunkenness, fouling in public areas, uncontrolled animals, dealing or taking drugs and street drinking, graffiti, damage to street furniture, property and buildings, fly-tipping, damage to trees, hedges and plants, abandoned vehicles, intimidation and harassment of individuals, cyber bullying and stalking, malicious communications, are all considered to be examples of ASB and do not need to be tolerated.  
A record of consistent behaviour is needed, so in the case of persistent occurrence, please request and complete a nuisance diary from Ashford Borough Council, via our Ward Member Charles Dehnel on and also report the incident, using the Report it App or online using the below link and always keep a copy:
