If the complaint is of a criminal nature please contact An Garda Siochana.

WHAT  LIMERICK CITY COUNCIL CAN DO TO TACKLE ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR?

Local Authorities and Housing Associations in Ireland have specific powers to evict anyone who is engaging in anti-social behaviour.  Local Authorities can also refuse to let a dwelling or sell one under the tenant purchase scheme on the grounds of anti-social behaviour.

The Council takes a strong position where we believe acts of anti-social behaviour are taking place.  Offending tenants may face legal action which could lead to eviction or exclusion of a member of the family

The Council has adopted an Anti-Social Behaviour Strategy as per The Housing (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act, 2009, Section 35. To locate the Strategy document please click on the link below.
