Anti Social Behaviour Policy

This policy covers two main things, one is to do with tenants being found in possession of drugs in their house and the other is general Anti-Social Behaviour.

The section regarding drugs deals with possession of drugs for the purpose of sale or supply, under the Misuse of Drugs Acts, 1977 and 1984. Any tenant found to come under the above, will be immediately evicted.

The part dealing with Anti-Social Behaviour deals with anybody hurting or intimidating neighbours or their visitors. It is tied in with part 10 of the tenancy agreement, which states:

“The Tenant shall not cause any nuisance or be guilty of or permit of any conduct likely to cause annoyance or disturbance to his neighbours.”

This means that not only will a tenant be in breach of tenancy if they are causing a nuisance or disturbing his neighbours, but that they will also be in breach if any visitors to their house is causing a nuisance.

Also any tenant found with a partner living with them, without the consent of Wicklow County Council is in breach of tenancy and action will be taken against this tenant.
