The Out of Hours Noise Nuisance Service is now part of Leeds Anti-Social Behaviour Team. The new 'ASB Response Team' partners with West Yorkshire Police to enhance delivery of service on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. From 2 May 2014, the Out of Hours response team is joined by Police Community Support Officers to respond to noise nuisance calls across the city between 6pm and 4am. This partnership allows the council to deploy two vans to maximise calls attended, and in a short space of time has raised our customer satisfaction rates to 87.5% New processes and evidence gathering has already led to court proceedings against persistent noise offenders. Noise is a normal part of our daily lives, but noise that is unreasonable or excessive will be challenged.
Who is the Leeds Anti-Social Behaviour Team?
Leeds Anti-Social Behaviour Team (LASBT) is a partnership team formed in 2012 after a comprehensive review of anti-social behaviour services. Our 90 members of staff come from Leeds City Council, West Yorkshire Police, Housing Leeds, Belle Isle Tenant Management Organisation, West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Services and Victim Support, and are split into 4 teams covering the City Centre, East North East, West North West & South areas of Leeds. LASBT work together to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB) in your area. We want to tackle anti-social behaviour at the earliest opportunity to prevent problems from escalating and will utilise a range of tools from mediation through to civil and criminal prosecutions.
When you contact us, your details remain confidential. Leeds Anti-Social Behaviour Team will not take action without your consent. We are not able to respond to anonymous complaints, although this information will be recorded in case of future complaints.
Ways you can help our investigation:
Keep a diary of the nuisance. Download a Nuisance Diary in the Documents section on this page.
There are five basic questions we need you to answer when you report anti-social behaviour or noise nuisance:
Is the problem in your home, outside your home, or somewhere else? Be as specific about the location as you can.
When does the nuisance occur? Is it at night or early hours of the morning? Provide dates and times for each incident.
Is the person or are the people involved known to you? Can you describe them?
Is there a reason you are being targeted, or is it an issue that is affecting the whole community?
