Anti-social behaviour is one of the biggest disruptive problems that can affect a resident. The police can only advice if they attend but action can be taken by the Anti-social behaviour team that works 24 hours in the borough. Their number is 0800 917 5918 *, they can even confiscate equipment if necessary. It is advised to call them whilst the noise nuisance is happening. On Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, between 8pm – 3.30 am there are ASB Officers to contact on 020 7364 7070.
During the day the council’s Pest and noise nuisance number is 020 7364 5007.
You can complain online and get a reference number for the complaint, please note it down as it appears on the website after you submitted the complaint. You can complain either anonymously or with details.
Non-urgent nuisance observations can be reported via e-mail to the BethnalGreen.SNT@met.police.uk. It is most helpful to give the best detailed descriptions of the problem as possible, e.g. time, date, place, car number plates, person description.
If you feel your complaints are not acted upon and also just for peace of mind you can also inform the Parkview Neighbourhood Watch by ringing 020 8980 9495 and the TRA at the Glasshouse.
The Police may refer certain items to the council or RSL for further action but in the first instance the problem should be looked into and dealt with by the Police.
- nuisance, rowdy or inconsiderate neighbours
- vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting
- the buying or selling of drugs in public
- street drinking
- prostitution related activity
- environmental damage including littering, dumping of rubbish and abandonment of cars
- begging and vagrancy
- fireworks misuse
- inconsiderate or inappropriate use of vehicles.
101 can also be used to report a crime that has already happened or to seek crime prevention advice.
Always call 999 when a crime is happening, someone suspected of a crime is nearby, someone is injured, being threatened or in danger.
