What is not treated as anti-social behaviour?
Normally, everyday living situations or problems related to divergent lifestyles are not treated as antisocial behaviour. These are low-level issues such as children playing, cooking or household smells, babies crying, D.I.Y carried out during reasonable hours, smoking a normal cigarette in one’s home, one-off party and other minor misunderstandings between neighbours. However, these can be dealt with as anti-social – even though they are low-level – when they happen regularly and deliberately.
