Anti Social Behaviour
Anti-social behaviour (ASB) is behaviour which causes, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress. It can be anything from low-level persistent nuisance to serious violent behaviour. No-one should have to deal with ASB or live in fear of harassment. We want you to be able to enjoy your home and environment.
Estuary’s approach to anti-social behaviour:
We aim to promote a safe and secure environment for people to live in and tackling and reducing anti-social behaviour is important to us.
We set out clear requirements of our tenants in Tenancy Agreements and estate wide Good Neighbour Agreements (GNA) and we take enforcement action where appropriate.
Estuary work in partnership with our tenants, leaseholders and other agencies to prevent and deal with anti-social behaviour.

Do you have an idea which you think will reduce anti-social behaviour?
We can provide grants to residents who want to reduce anti-social behaviour and make a difference in their estate or neighbourhood. If you have an idea for a project that benefits your community, please read about our Community Chest fund.

Stop The Hate
‘Stop the Hate’ initiative has been launched (Wednesday December 4th 2013) as part of a concerted effort to find new ways to tackle hate crime in Essex.
The theme is ‘Report it to Sort it’ and emphasises on encouraging people to tell police if they have been a victim of hate crime, whether it be based on race, religion, sexual orientation, transgender identity or disability. Click Here for more information >>
