Please complete this form and a member of our team will contact you as soon as possible. As we can’t do anything with anonymous information you will need to leave your name and contact details.
You can also report Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) through My Bron Afon.
The UK government definition of Antisocial Behaviour (ASB) is:
Here are some examples of ASB: Violence, Verbal Abuse, Harassment, Hate crime, Domestic Abuse, Use and Trade of Illicit Substances such as drugs, Noise Nuisance, Nuisance from Vehicles and Damage to property.
In order for us to investigate any ASB you report to us it is very important that you provide as much information as possible. Without this information it could delay or affect your complaint. We ask that you provide the following information:
All reports of ASB are treated anonymously during an investigation. However, for us to fully investigate a report, we ask that you provide your contact details. This will allow us to provide updates on the investigation and ask you for any more information, if we need it.
If your complaint is in relation to noise nuisance you can download ‘The noise app’. This app uses your smartphone to make recordings of noise nuisance which can be sent directly to us. We will be able to investigate these recordings and keep you informed throughout the investigation. The app can be downloaded from the Google play or Apple Store or by following this link https://www.thenoiseapp.com/#/.
We aim to respond to complaints as soon possible. You will receive an acknowledgement message within 10 working days and we will make contact to discuss the issues following this.
If a crime has been committed then it should be reported to the police in the first instance on 999 for emergencies or 101 for non-emergencies. We are committed to dealing with crime in our communities and work with the police and other agencies to do this.
Anyone is able to submit a complaint to us about ASB. However, we cannot investigate ASB that is not caused by our tenants. If this is the case then you should report to the Police via 101 or Torfaen Council on 01495 762200.
The details of your complaint are passed to an officer to investigate. The officer will acknowledge the complaint within 10 working days and then contact you to discuss the complaint and agree what we will do (space needed) with the complaint. Can we stick with original text? I don’t think this reads well.
The complaint will be investigated by your Community Housing Officer. They will introduce themselves to you once you have been in contact with us. Can this be removed as we’re not currently sure what action Safer Communities will pick-up and what will sit with CHO.
It is important that you keep in contact with us and if further incidents occur you should report these to us. You may be asked to keep a nuisance diary sheet including the information required above. If further information is required the investigating officer will get in contact with you to discuss this.
We are committed to dealing with ASB in our communities. We will investigate the complaint as transparently as possible. We will work with you to resolve your complaint and will keep you informed of the actions we may take. These could include noise monitoring equipment, mediation or further action.
