Reports of anti-social behaviour incidents in Doncaster increased by 15 per cent in the first three months of this year, compared to last year.
But the increase in the first quarter of the year – when 4,554 incidents were recorded – is in contrast to the long term trend.
Figures show nuisance behaviour fell overall by 35.7 per cent from 2010/11 to 2013/14.
The details were revealed in a report to Doncaster Council cabinet yesterday.
Mayor Ros Jones told the meeting: “As part of our zero tolerance approach to anti-social behaviour, we will do all we can to stop this.”
The Anti Social Behaviour Theme Group said the rise was largely due to increases in vehicle nuisance, rowdiness and neighbour nuisance. Doncaster Council introduced a three-year anti-social behaviour strategy in 2012 which made dealing with rowdy and bad behaviour a mayoral priority.
