Tenancy Management Section, Housing Department,
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council,
The section investigates complaints of drug dealing, violence, threats, intimidation, harassment, trespass, criminal damage, and lesser offences of breach of the tenancy agreement. Most Anti-Social Behaviour is a criminal offence and the Council will liaise with An Garda Siochana in this regard.
Unreasonable noise from a dwelling is a common problem and if a resolution cannot be agreed then a complainant can make an application to the District Court for a Noise Abatement Order in accordance with S108 Environment Protection Act 1992. If the noise is significant and persistent and occurs regularly the Anti-social Section may investigate the matter as it may constitute a breach of the tenancy agreement. Issues involving dogs will be recorded and referred to the Municipal Services Department and the Dog Warden.
The Council has new legislation available to it to deal with Anti-Social Behaviour by way of Tenancy Warnings /Repossession Proceedings or Excluding Orders.
The Council’s strategy which reflects the new legislation and procedures can be found below.
