When reporting anti-social behaviour, it is important to provide as much information as possible. Clann will act in a fair and impartial manner to all parties and will only be able to act if there is evidence.
- Providing detail helps Clann’s investigations substantially and allows Scheme Manager to gain a better understanding of the incident and the impact it may have had on associated households and communities.
- If CCTV is available, it is very important that accurate dates, times, and locations are provided to Clann to enable the investigation to be dealt with as quickly and as accurately as possible.
- If Clann bring a case to the Residential Tenancies Board, without strong evidence, it is most likely the case would be lost.
- Therefore, we need you, your community and collaboration with relevant state agencies to successfully tackle anti-social behaviour.
- Although you can anomalously report incidents of anti-social behaviour, it is important to note that it is exceptionally difficult for Clann to investigate or act on anonymous complaints.
- Therefore, if a case it brought to the residential tenancies board, in most instances, anonymous complaints will not be considered.
