- Anti-social behaviour takes in a range of nuisances, disorder and crimes which affect people’s lives on a daily basis, none are acceptable.
- It is defined in the 1998 Crime and Disorder Act as ‘acting in a manner that caused or was likely to cause harassment alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household’.
- This behaviour is broken down into four main categories; the misuse of public space, disregard for community/personal wellbeing, acts directed at people, and environmental damage.
Brighton and Sussex Universities employ community liaison staff to assist in resolving problems involving students in the community. Where the behaviour of students is found to be unacceptable, they do have a range of substantial sanctions which they may use.

Flytipping is the illegal dumping of waste items or material. It is a source of neighbourhood blight and can attract significant penalties following prosecution. The council and police will seek to prosecute for flytipping where the evidence is available, but for this they rely substantially on community members coming forward to report. If you see somebody tipping waste in your area, try to get any information about them – particularly vehicle type and registration if a vehicle is involved. If flytipping is ongoing you can report to the police on 999. If you are reporting it after the event, you should call the council on 01273 292929 use the council online reporting for HERE or email email@example.com
