Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of unacceptable activity that causes harm to an individual, to their community or to their environment. This could be an action by someone else that leaves you feeling alarmed, harassed or distressed. It also includes fear of crime or concern for public safety, public disorder or public nuisance.

Examples of anti-social behaviour include:

  • Nuisance, rowdy or inconsiderate neighbours
  • Vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting
  • Street drinking
  • Environmental damage including littering, dumping of rubbish and abandonment of cars
  • Begging and vagrancy
  • Fireworks misuse

Regular Target Patrols to take place during peek ASB times.

Ludlow SNT work alongside Shropshire Council harm Reduction Team, Shropshire Public Health and licensing Team and South Shropshire Housing to limit ASB in and around Ludlow as much as possible.

A number of ASB letters have recently been sent out to youths who have been acting anti socially and have been warned about their behaviour as well as how this can lead to prosecution and criminal conviction.

We have also seen an increase in reports of anti-social behaviour on the Eco Park, Ludlow. To date, 32 warning letters have been sent out to registered keepers of vehicles seen at the location warning them that continuing with such behaviour could result in their vehicle being seized.

2 Section 59 warnings have been issued for drivers acting anti socially, this means that should they be found to acting the same way again, they will have their car seized and will be expected to pay for holding & recovery of the vehicles.
