We investigate complaints of:
• drug dealing,
• criminal damage,
• lesser offences which breach our tenancy agreement.
Most anti-social behaviour is a criminal offence and we will work with An Garda Síochána as required.
A common problem is unreasonable noise from a home. If this cannot be solved the person who made the complaint can apply to the District Court for a Noise Abatement Order. This is in line with Environment Protection legislation. If the noise is significant, ongoing and happens regularly, we will investigate this, as it could be a breach of our tenancy agreement.
Issues involving dogs will be recorded and sent to our Municipal Services Department and the Dog Warden.
We have new legislation to help us deal with anti-social behaviour through Tenancy Warnings, Repossession Proceedings and Excluding Orders.
Our strategy can be found below.
