Cork County Council owns and manages over 7500 properties throughout the county. These houses may be located in estates of different sizes in towns and villages or once-off in rural areas. Cork County Council has a duty of care to ensure that residents can live in peace.
Estate Management is primarily about making Local Authority estates better places to live in. There are Area Officers dealing with Estate Management, Anti-Social Behaviour and tenancy enforcement, who each operate in a designated area of the county, and carry out a range of services such as:
- Advise Tenants on all details of their tenancy and Estate Management, such as the development of Residents Associations
- Assist in problems that occur in estates
- Investigate complaints of Anti-Social Behaviour & breach of tenancy
More details can be found in Cork County Council's Anti-Social Behaviour Strategy (pdf).
