Reporting Antisocial Behaviour

Police Scotland

Report Antisocial Behaviour to Police Scotland on their non-emergency number, 101.

Neighbour Complaints/Disputes and Other Forms of Antisocial Behaviour

Aberdeenshire Council does not currently have one dedicated telephone helpline to report antisocial behaviour. 

If you are a Council tenant experiencing problems with antisocial behaviour within or near your home, contact your local Housing Office.

If you are a tenant of Registered Social Landlord you should report problems to your housing provider. You can find contact details of the Registered Social Landlords that provide or manage property within Aberdeenshire.

If you are a home-owner, or tenant of a private landlord, you can make a complaint about noise to our Environmental Health team. You can also use the Noise app to report noise issues to us.

If you live in a privately owned property, and need support with other forms of antisocial behaviour, you can contact our Community Safety Team at:

Email: antisocialbehaviour@aberdeenshire.gov.uk

Neighbour Noise

Noise from neighbours is a common source of disturbance. The most frequent complaints are about loud music or TV, shouting, banging doors and DIY activities. Remember that no house or flat is totally soundproof, and gardens and garages can be particularly noisy. More information about Neighbour Noise can be found in our environmental health pages. You can also use the Noise app to report noise issues.

If your complaint is about a dog barking, you can contact Aberdeenshire Council's Dog Wardens.

Fly-tipping and Litter

Information on how to report fly-tipping can be found on our Fly-Tipping page.

Crimestoppers

Information on crimes can also be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111 or by contacting Crimestoppers online.

Graffiti

More information about graffiti and how to report it can be found on our Graffiti page.

The Noise App

From 2nd November 2020 we are taking part in a 4-week free trial of the Noise app – an app that enables anyone within Aberdeenshire to record evidence of noise nuisance onto their smartphones via the app and submit it to the council.
