Housing Executive needs help in fight against anti-social behaviour
Published: 8 Oct 2012 09:50
As a responsible landlord the Housing Executive will take all necessary action to combat anti social behaviour as Michael Callaghan, the Housing Executive's Fermanagh District manager explains:
"The Housing Executive treats reports of anti social behaviour very seriously and will not hesitate to take action against any of its tenants found to be involved in this activity.
"However, to be truly effective in challenging this behaviour we need people to come forward and report incidents as and when they occur. All reports received are dealt with in a confidential manner.
"The Housing Executive works closely with the local community and with its partner agencies; the PSNI, Fermanagh District Council and Youth Justice; to ensure that anti social behaviour does not take hold.
"Most cases of anti social behaviour reported to us are of a minor nature and can be successfully dealt with by using warning letters, mediation and Acceptable Behaviour Contracts (ABCs). However, where early interventions fail, we will not hesitate to use legal measures including serving an injunction or, as a last resort, the repossession of a property.
"By undertaking this type of action we are attempting to offer support to victims and reassurance to communities that anti social behaviour and nuisance will not be tolerated."
If you have experienced or witnessed anti social behaviour, you should contact your local Housing Executive District Office. You can do this by phoning, calling in person to the office, advising a housing officer or neighbourhood officer who may be in your area, sending a letter or email. If English is not your first language and you wish to report an incident, your local District Office has a telephone translation facility. Or if you prefer, reports can also be made on your behalf by a relative, friend or other representative. All reports received are dealt with in a confidential manner.
Dependent upon the nature of the incident it may also be necessary for you to report the incident to another agency. For example, if the incident is serious or criminal in nature, you should contact the PSNI or if the incident relates to environmental issues such as pets, noise or rubbish dumping, then you should report this to Fermanagh District Council.
