Noise, nuisance and anti-social behaviour

Our residents should be able to enjoy peaceful enjoyment of their homes.  We work with residents to tackle any anti-social behaviour that causes a nuisance to others and will work with other partnering agencies to take appropriate action and support our residents.

We know that pleasant, safe communities and neighbourhoods free from anti-social behaviour are good places to live.

We will work with residents and other local agencies to provide the best possible environment for you to live in.

You have a responsibility to respect your neighbours and the local environment and be aware of and keep to the conditions of your tenancy. You are also responsible for the behaviour of your family, visitors and pets.

In consultation with tenants, we have agreed the following definition to encourage positive neighbourhoods: "Acceptable behaviour is behaviour that is considerate, responsible and reasonable and has regard for our neighbours and how our behaviour may affect them. It requires respect for our neighbours, our environment and our community."

We treat reports of anti-social behaviour very seriously and are committed to doing all we reasonably can to deal with and prevent anti-social behaviour. If you are experiencing any problems in your neighbourhood, please contact us.

Further diary sheets are available to download if you have already reported this to us and require more.

Anti-Social Behaviour Policy

You can see copy of the Lewes District Council and Eastbourne Homes anti-social behaviour (housing) policy below.

We are currently aligning these policies across Eastbourne and Lewes district.  

We do not have any powers to deal with aircraft, road or railway noise, but if you are experiencing domestic noise from neighbours,, noise from dogs or noise from commercial premises, you can ask your council to investigate this for you. We cannot investigate a complaint of noise or anti-social behaviour without involvement and support from the person complaining, so this cannot be done anonymously. We will ensure your details are not shared with the person responsible without your knowledge.

If you have already reported this to us and require further diary sheets, download them below.

If you wish to report problems with domestic noise from neighbours, noise from dogs or noise from commercial premises please contact us.
