Coronavirus (Covid-19): We're asking you please to only call 999 if it is an emergency. If it's not an emergency, use our online services if you can. If you’re looking for information about the government instruction to stay at home and how that may affect you, you'll find guidance on Gov.uk. We’ll be updating information on our services over the coming days, please check online for those updates.
Antisocial behaviour can have a lasting impact on neighbourhoods and communities as it often leads to an increase in crime, particularly violence and criminal damage. If you’ve witnessed antisocial behaviour of any kind, report it using our quick and simple online tool.
Is it an emergency?
Does it feel like the situation could get heated or violent very soon? Is someone in immediate danger? Do you need support right away? If so, please call 999 now.
If you're deaf or hard of hearing, use our textphone service 18000 or text us on 999 if you’ve pre-registered with the emergencySMS service.
Report problems with the way a vehicle is parked
If a parking space is available on an unrestricted public road, even if it’s directly outside your house, anyone is allowed to park in it. The space does not belong to the property.
However, if someone has parked in your designated parking space without your permission, please contact whoever is responsible for your building, such as the freeholder, council or managing agent. They can help you resolve the issue.
In all cases, our first advice is to try to resolve the issue peacefully yourself. Try to speak to the driver as they may not be aware of the problem. If you can’t find them, leave a polite note on their windscreen.
If a vehicle is blocking the entrance and stopping you from driving onto your driveway, this is not a police matter. Your local council may be able to assist, but policies will vary depending on where you live. We'd always recommend having a polite word with the driver first, as there may have been a misunderstanding.
If a vehicle is stopping you from driving off of your driveway and stopping you from moving your car out of your driveway, please contact us.
