If you have a neighbour like this you can relate to what I am saying.I have noticed an increase in neighbour complaints to police about anti-social behaviour such as excessive noise, drunkenness and vandalism.For more information on ASBOs and anti-social behaviour in general, see our sections.One of the most common forms of harassment is malicious or nuisance telephone calls. Abusive, annoying, harassing, obscene or threatening telephone calls are an invasion of your privacy.Botany Downs: Mirrabooka Ave, Seneca Crt, Mission View Dr. East Tamaki: Chapeltown Dr, Crooks Rd, Cryers Rd, Greenmount Dr, Kerwyn Ave, Nandina Ave, Redcastle Dr, Sayers Cl.

Local authorities have a responsibility to take immediate enforcement action to protect those who are being harassed or intimidated.
Eviction of the perpetrator is another option, moving the individual away from those whom they are intimidating or harassing.It is important that this is accompanied by other action, such as an injunction, to ensure that the behaviour does not reoccur in a new area, or that the perpetrator does not return to the area to intimidate those who assisted the eviction action.Intimidation or harassment may constitute a criminal offence under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 in England & Wales or the Protection from Harassment (Northern Ireland) Order 1997 in Northern Ireland (collectively referred to as ' PHA').In some cases, the victim and the perpetrator live close to each other, often as neighbours.The intensity and frequency of incidents, combined with the proximity of victim and perpetrator, not only makes harassment and intimidation extremely distressing, it also makes it difficult for recipients of this kind of abuse from taking a stand and speaking out against the behaviour.
Intimidation or harassment is a personalised form of anti-social behaviour, specifically aimed at particular individuals.
