The COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging for many families. This is a situation that none of us want to be in. Families self-isolating will mean more people being at home during the day with children, likely to be making more noise than usual. We ask that you try and be as tolerant as possible.
Please do your best to be good neighbours. Be understanding and remain respectful of each other. We'll continue to be here to deal with cases of anti-social behaviour (ASB) and will work with you to resolve issues.
If you're suffering with noise nuisance, visit our noise web page for details on how to use the free Noise App.
You should report all crimes, including threats or acts of violence and incidents of hate crime and domestic abuse, to the police. We do however promise that we'll adopt a zero-tolerance approach to these issues, and we'll take all necessary action at the appropriate time either now or in the future as the lockdown subsides.
Every year we hold our Neighbourhood Awards event, so that we can give recognition to the people who really make a difference in our communities.
The competition includes awards for the best gardens, as well as celebrating good neighbours, young heroes and amazing volunteers.
Nominations are now open for the 2020 neighbourhood awards.
