Reporting antisocial behaviour



Our aim is to improve lives in Oldham

This can be achieved by creating places where people treat each other with respect, consideration and behave in a way that is socially acceptable.

We want our tenants and communities to be proud of the area where you live.

You can help by

  • Keeping to your tenancy conditions and in particular being considerate towards your neighbours

  • Be responsible and accountable for the behaviour of family members and visitors

  • Take responsibility for solving minor disagreements and show consideration for different lifestyles

  • Treat all our employees, contractors and anyone working on our estates with respect
