Neighbours arguing/shouting

Return to the ASB toolkit

We would not usually consider this to be antisocial behaviour.

  • You may want to have a friendly word with your neighbour as they may not be aware you can hear them. We’ve put together some tips to help you resolve problems with neighbours.
  • If you still feel you are being disturbed, we suggest you contact the local Environmental Health Officer. Should they take enforcement action, we will use this as evidence against the perpetrator if appropriate.
  • If the situation has not improved, mediation might be of help to you. It’s an informal, confidential and independent service available to help neighbours sort out their differences and reach an agreement. They can help you and your neighbour(s) understand each other’s point of view and reach a solution.  Please ask and we will refer you.

If you have concerns about the welfare of an adult or child in the household, you should contact social services Safeguarding Team and/or the Police.
