Children playing

We would not consider this to be anti-social behaviour.

Play is an essential part of every child's life and is vital for the enjoyment of childhood as well as their health, well-being and development. 

Although some types of behaviour can be annoying, children playing in the street or communal areas (unless they are causing damage) is not anti-social behaviour. 

We encourage you to be tolerant of this and to speak with your neighbours in an appropriate manner if this is causing a persistent problem.
