Northland residents are appealing to Housing New Zealand to deal with intimidating tenants involved in criminal activity in state homes.Dozens of residents have complained to police and HNZ about state tenants' intimidating behaviour, fighting, including with weapons, theft, drugs and "booze crazed" partying in several streets in Kerikeri and Dargaville.If it were a private tenancy we'd have been kicked out long ago."HNZ recently enforced its new 'zero-eviction' policy, where, instead of referring tenants to police and evicting them for illegal drug activity, tenants are now referred to addiction services to get their lives back on track.HNZ Northland Area Manager Noeline Tua said the tenants in the properties in question have been working with HNZ and other agencies to resolve matters."While HNZ's aim is to keep people housed and get them the appropriate services for any issues they may face, serious anti-social behaviours and other significant illegal activities would be dealt with by police and other relevant authorities," Tua said.The criminal offending includes theft from vehicles, stolen cars, disorderly behaviour and wilful damage, both in the street and in surrounding areas, he said.
Drummond said a lot of the problems arise because the tenant's allow other youth onto the property.Police have made "a number" of arrests for the offending, he said.
HNZ has received about 30 notifications of issues from people in Keri Keri and Dargaville, she said."But these include complaints about car parking and registration to a person wearing "gang clothing" to differences of opinion about behaviour."More serious allegations have been referred to police and noise and dog control and HNZ continues to meet with both the tenants identified as causing problems and the relevant government agencies as the matters are sorted," Tua said.
